WINNER: Best Documentary, The People’s Film Festival.
New York City is undergoing a period of “hyper-gentrification” unlike anywhere else, but courageous communities and activists are fighting back.
Gentrification is not a new phenomenon. In fact, New Yorkers have been talking about gentrification ever since the term was first coined in the 1960s. But over the decades, as more and more wealthy real estate developers and giant corporations have sought to reconstruct urban landscapes for economic gain, what was once a process of gradual change has turned into a nightmare of radical transformation and displacement.
New York City is currently undergoing a period of “hyper-gentrification” unlike anywhere else in the world.
There Goes the Neighborhood presents a portrait of the communities and activists who are courageously fighting back against the powers of greed and corruption in order to preserve the diversity and culture of their city.
