Hi! I'm Sabrina Rose from Channel 6, coming to you from Hipster Lane! Today we are looking at the renovation of this lovely neighborhood. The renovation is also know as a little thing called gentrification.
As you can see, the newly renovated neighborhood has attracted many young people as well as tourists. And the new "hip" companies in the neighborhood provide the perfect hangout spot.
Not only can the renovation of a neighborhood cause many who were previously living there to become evicted, due to high rent. It can also cause the people of the original community to become culturally isolated, prompting them to leave.
Additionally, the crime rate has seen a serious decline, thanks to the hard working police officers.
While everything looks pretty, gentrification causes lots of issues for the people that were living there first. You can help stop gentrification by signing the petition on the Channel 6 Website.
