Antithetical– Adjective

Definition: directly opposite or opposed

The word was found in the newspaper on Monday November 3, 2014. The word is located in the middle of the article The sentence began “Antithetical to the neighborhood today, the working classes pushed out the wealthy, knocking down mansions to build tenements, according to John B. Manbeck, a former Brooklyn borough historian.”

At first I didn’t understand the word, however I looked up the word and put together the with the sentence.  The word is being used to describe the people in the neighborhood, they oppose the idea.
