Abstract:

Since the last mid century, more or less, we are being spectators of a new phenomenon that is tackling cities as well and altering urban cultures but here in New York City is more prominent. The Brooklyn neighborhoods are a perfect example. Lately these have been mostly taken by the rich Jewish community, which are buying apartments, houses and entire buildings to renovate them and consequently raise the price and as a domino effect this happening more and more, translating these from poor to rich neighborhoods. This is with the fake intention to make the neighborhoods more family friendly but what really causes is the unaffordability for the majority, pushing away also the creative community.
