  • The three part critique about gentrification, “conveniently dismisses America’s legacy of constitutionally implemented, segregationist housing policies” inflationary effect on housing costs sans any gentrification or as the author claims “the more likely culprit of neighborhood change” (see Newburgh, NY). As per the “theft of pride” narrative, it’s a cop out. It takes zero dollars on an individual’s part to not litter, to not vandalize one’s community, to act civil. You can’t blame HUD for that. While the author asserts ‘treating neighborhoods as components of regional ecosystems’ is a novel idea, apparently NYS continues to bleed residents because “more fair” policies have not equated to more opportunities. So, Alex Baca…assets seek opportunity, not the other way around (see i.e. Newburgh Sash and Restoration).
