What does “Gentrification” Mean in Crown Heights?

After years of writing about gentrification, Nick Juravich posted about the term on Huffington Post:

“… From my admittedly limited perspective, I’ve come to feel the term fails to explain some key trends in Crown Heights, and that understanding the neighborhood means taking other long-term forces like (im)migration and community organizing seriously as agents of change and continuity. It’s no revelation, but I do feel it’s been missing from some of the more recent reports on the area.).”
