We choose gentrification at Williamsburg, Brooklyn as our social issue. Willaimsburg was not the most desirable neighborhood since it used to be an indurstrial area and where people who couldn’t afford rent would flock to. As the neighborhood is being gentrified the L train along with the buses are not the only means of transportation. The new ferry has now made it easier for Brooklynites to travel to and from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Now the downside of gentrification is how it now forces those who made it a home are now being shuffled to find other placed that are affordable.
