New Yorkers first have to stop deluding themselves into believing that today’s hyper-gentrification is the same old thing. We all have to stop saying, “New York always changes, so this is normal.” This is not normal. This is state sponsored, corporate driven, turbo charged, far flung, and impossible to stop in its current form.
Gentrification; super-gentrification; hyper-gentrification. Once the thing accelerates beyond a certain point it becomes an altogether different beast.
