    Great point: "New housing comes with higher-end supermarkets, restaurants, and stores, which increase the value of the neighborhood faster than the new housing units can absorb." I personally find it sad that longtime residents have to be ok with the growth.

    What do you think of Spike Lee's thoughts on gentrification?

      There are pretty more factors related with the success of gentrification process like the history of the area/space, interest of the community, social structure, an intense breakage of an era of culture and economic viability. There's no harm for the process if the aspects related with it are dealt in wisely and a wider list of its impact and effects over a period of at least a living of a generation is considered. What happens actually - planning is done for a period of 20-30 years and in this accelerated phase of development, its pretty difficult to predict the exact situation by virtue of the approach generally followed by the planners.
