First aired: February 25, 2015.
On this special edition of Independent Sources hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we examine why the Central Brooklyn neighborhood is statistically the most gentrified area in New York City. We’ll feature one long time resident, Kai Avent-deLeon, who is making the most of the transition and started her own business along Tompkins Avenue. Then we’ll speak with a panel of residents and experts about some of the negative and positive effects of these changes.
