    Examines gentrification, a process by which an underdeveloped neighborhood is `upgraded' by real estate speculation, with higher income individuals moving into and improving existing properties, but also displacing many of the neighborhood's longtime residents. Focusing on three tenant groups in Brooklyn, NY, this video shows how the threat of displacement led community residents to organize in defense of their homes and community.
