I decided to do my infographic on the positive and negative effects of gentrification on New York City. To show whether or not gentrification can help neighborhoods within the boroughs. Being from the Bronx I understand how important the culture and diversity can be to a neighborhood, as the neighborhood I lived has gotten better without gentrification.
