LL,

Quick Question!? How does one "resist gentrification"!?

In my observations of 'gentrified' neighbourhoods, it seems unstoppable.

Locke St -- from biker haven to antiques district to YUPville

Church St, Toronto -- Trashy east-end hood to Gaybourhood to Yuppies, forcing the younger/less wealthy gay community to move to Queen St W (Parkdale) which is starting to gentrify as we speak, forcing those current artists to move to Hamilton. Walking down Ossington last week, I couldn't believe the amount of Studios that have been converted into 'trendy' bars, etc. Parkdale has been a gentrification hotbed for the last couple of years, which could explain Hamilton's recent Artist Boom!
