My Brooklyn

February 18, 2013

When one thinks of “gentrification” the transformation of neighborhoods around the world may come to mind, but one place in particular has stood out in recent years: Brooklyn, New York. Now coined Hipsterville, parts of Brooklyn have replaced multi-cultural hubs with vegan cafes and high-rise luxury condo buildings, paralleling a shift in demographics. This documentary looks at what gentrification means following the director’s personal experience in the planning and development of the area. Hoping this comes to the Boston area soon!
