Interesting Article in the New York Times about Gentrification and Portland’s Restorative Listening Project

Thanks to Reuben for sending me the article. I can certainly see there are similarities to many neighborhoods in Washington, DC. A taste from the article:

“Yet one person’s frontier, it turns out, is often another’s front porch. It has been true across the country: gentrification, which increases housing prices and tension, sometimes has racial overtones and can seem like a dirty word. Now Portland is encouraging black and white residents to talk about it, but even here in Sincere City, the conversation has been difficult.”

You can read the full article here.

Do you think a listening project would be useful in some of DC’s neighborhoods?
