  • Gentrification is bad

    Gentrification takes a community that has worked hard to build it up and care for it, and removes all the people that worked so hard to get it there. The soul of a city is then removed by replacing a surf/craft shop that is run by and caters to local surfers, and replaces it with a Starbucks. While they make a good coffee, they have taken away what may have been a cultural landmark.

  • Gentrification Has A Negative Impact

    Gentrification has a negative impact on communities. Making a place more desirable for young, white hipsters may seem like a good idea, however in the process of this communities are destroyed. By building up businesses and putting in luxury condos the cost of living goes up and forces families who have been residents of neighborhoods for generations out.

  • It is bad

    Gentrification ruins home and brings in hipsters. Hipsters seem nice but they take all the coffee. Another thing is that gentrification is singling out minorities and destroying their homes. All that waste goes somewhere and make the environment worse. This is more word because I need more word so yeah.

  • I dont know

    Well it does not know if i were to be another one or just a simple but never more have i ever felt the same to be honest as well but honestly if it were to be honest then it would have to be good if you know what i am saying

  • Gentrification Hurts Low Income Families

    Gentrification seems to be a good thing for a neighborhood when outsiders see properties looking nice and home values increasing. In reality, however, the increasing property values make it more difficult for working-class families to keep their homes. When property values increase, property taxes increase, costing those who have lived their entire lives in the neighborhood.

  • I Don't See Why

    People keep talking about "hipsters" like some alien species yet the definitions are so vague it seems like everyone under 40 who drinks coffee could be one. Blaming everything on the bad "hipsters" sounds alot like the retoric of people who fear immigrants. White flight was the opposite of the what seems to be happening now and it along with "block busting" seems to be considered a negative and decidedly racist thing. Why should the growing of local communities be considered bad? Rent going up is the only bad thing I really see coming out of it, but it should positively affect homeowners. I personally think gentrification has been unfairly used as a scapegoat.

  • Gentrification Is Bad

    Gentrification is honestly more like a system in the sense that the cycle continues to occur. A poor neighborhood is present, rich people move in until eventually migrants and more poor,etc. Return it to its original state. Because of this, most of the gentrification cycle is spent in that "rich" stage until society changes and so does the landscape,poor,etc. Therefore to say it's a good thing is really a stretch because if you weigh the pros and cons the cons outweigh the pros. Gentrification creates businesses, but ruins them also. Gentrification raises cost of living, subsequently only the elite can afford it until the price declines. This means over half the population must depart. This causes the displacement of hundreds maybe thousands of people. Now they say "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few," but what happens when you have a widespread few that becomes the many? The the concept is reversed to where gentrification benefits the needs of the few rather than many it should serve. This is why in hindsight it might seem like a good idea, but in reality is not

  • It improves the standard of living, and that's what matters.

    This is such a stupid debate, there is no reason why we should have to keep talking about it. When rich people move out of cities, people complain. When rich people move into cities, people complain. I think the lesson here is that people will complain about everything.

    Gentrification raises the cost of living for the poor, but it brings an economic net benefit to an area which negates that. Often these places pre-gentrification have sublime levels of poverty and crime coupled with state-wide lows of education standards, terrible infrastructure and public transportation systems and a generally low quality of living. The neighbourhoods should consider the movement of the wealthy into their areas a godsend, because it will open up more businesses and create more jobs, and create immense improvements in the areas I previously mentioned. It may seem a terrible change in the short run, but the benefits in the long run are definitely worth it for even long-time residents.

  • I Really Don't Think So

    I don't understand why people have a problem with gentrification. This process makes it possible for some buildings to stand longer, for some buildings to receive proper care, and for some neighborhoods to improve rather than be in constant decline. Gentrification is a man made term to cover what I believe is a natural progression of change. It is not inherently bad. I think people who have a problem with gentrification have a general problem with change.
