This report is an analytical survey of the indicators and potential effects of gentrification in 3 New York neighborhoods, East New York, Canarsie, and Far Rockaway, as they relate to homelessness.
The report attempts to answer the following questions:
How does gentrification re-make the social landscape?
Does gentrification force low-income residents from their homes and communities?
Ultimately, is gentrification merely a code word for the displacement of poverty?
