Matthew L. Schuerman - Newcomers: Gentrification and Its Discontents — At Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 11, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this deeply researched study, Schuerman, senior editor at WNYC, develops a national history of gentrification by following changes since the 1950s in northwest Brooklyn, San Francisco’s Mission District, and the onetime site of Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing project. Offering vivid, even-handed profiles of the driving figures behind gentrification as well as the individuals caught up in it, Schuerman illuminates a situation with no easy answers, showing that gentrification is a complex process driven by both local realities and wider social and economic forces, one that is never all good or all bad and is always more complicated than its proponents and opponents admit.
