The positive/negative effects table[edit]

Really seems like it says "loss affordable housing" 4-5 times using different phrasing. Seems like an unnecessary effort to keep the list of negatives and positives equal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 32.214.231.93 (talk) 02:29, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

Thank you Rhadow. I'm not a boot, indeed ;-). Poland is making significant gentrification efforts. There are many gentrification programs in Polish cities. The government supports financially municipalities. The Łódź case is of specific importance. Not only because it's the biggest ongoing European gentrification nowadays (20% of the city), but also because of engagement in the good practice proliferation (for instance Łódź is pitching for the EXPO 2022 and the motto of the exhibition is "City Re:Invented"). I believe it should be mentioned, not only because I'm Polish ;-). --Rafał Szymczak (talk) 15:12, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Rafał Szymczak

Denver coffee house[edit]

Whodda thunk Gentrification would stimulate an edit war. Whoever decides to step into this mess should keep in mind that gentrification as it is generally defined -- private money buying and improving -- is unlikely to be affected by protests. Big public works may be, but that generally doesn't fall under the definition. Rhadow (talk) 15:57, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

interest in new article: Gentrification of Austin[edit]

Hi, I am a student at Rice University and considering writing a new article Gentrification of Austin in the same vein as the gentrification of Atlanta and San Francisco ect... articles. Feel free to comment below if you have any feedback! Cbadillo29 (talk) 00:04, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

racial factors[edit]

In the United States, there's a fairly widespread perception that overall, blacks are disproportionately displaced by gentrification, but rarely are among those making significant money off of it... AnonMoos (talk) 22:00, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Should I write about Gentrification in the media/In Popular Culture[edit]

I found a south park episode focused on Gentrification ("The City Park Of Town")[1] should I add a section for in popular culture or not. Memedoggo (talk) 13:08, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
