Cotton Comes to Harlem

Say it Rah-shay By Nov 02, 2008 No Comments

Gentrification rares its ugly head once more.
I am on the fence with this one. As a person who formerly lived in a low income area, I do acknowledge that it does suck to have your best efforts thwarted by neighbors who don’t care, trash as the norm, and people who have given up.
However, I remember being quite put out the last time I was on Penn’s Campus and realized there were more cops in the areas surrounding the hospital and university than at the 7-11 where a couple were having a violent argument.
Go figure.
Addendum added 11/3 : I listen to too much NPR. -r


I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.
