Gentrification in Detroit

Recommended Posts

Interesting article in the Free Press today about gentrification in Detroit.  According to a study by the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, while gentrification is happening in Detroit, it is happening on a smaller scale than in most other cities and is not for the most part greatly displacing previous low income residents.  Except for a very few hot spots, that is my my casual observation too.  It's not so much that gentrification isn't going on but rather that there is so much empty or underutilized property in Detroit that hardly anyone is being crowded out.
