Gentrification is a messy process. Although the term generally carries the negative connotations of displacing longtime locals, decreasing diversity, and “whitewashing” neighborhoods that once were lively and vibrant with culture; gentrified areas also experience an influx in consumer cash that can help grow small business, an increase in both the presence and quality of education and, most significantly, safer and cleaner living conditions. Nearly every major metropolitan area the world over has experienced gentrification in one way or another, but nowhere has it received so much media attention or been as noticeable an issue as in Brooklyn, New York. mybrooklyn is an honest, fascinating and educational documentary film currently in the late stages of production with the aim of spurring informed conversation on the issue of the gentrification of the borough. Films such as this could do a world of difference in leading to alternative urban planning proposals that could possibly result in historic neighborhoods maintaining their ethnic flavor while coinciding with the moderate development of new, high-end residential buildings. For those passionate about the cause, help donate the money needed to complete the film here.
