    Greenwich, eh? Maybe they know something we don’t.

    Sounds like there are two “G” words in here that maybe shouldn’t be.

      Do you consider gentrification a dirty word?

        Gentrification reflects the negative consequences of an otherwise great thing, which is urban revitalization. If revitalization isn’t done correctly, it can exacerbate social and economic gaps by further marginalizing those who stand to gain the least from the revitalization. So yes, it’s a dirty word.

    The change in permits is probably a poor indicator of gentrification compared to say the change in property values and demographics. Development can occur without gentrification…that’s what the whole anti-gentrification argument is all about: revitalizing neighborhoods without gentrifying them. So theoretically you could have a big increase in permits without gentrification.
