Mapping the Impact of Super-Gentrification in American Cities
National Science Foundation; Research Foundation of CUNY; & Brooklyn Public Library
This research analyzes the impact of extreme degrees of gentrification on neighborhood demographics in US cities, 1990-2020. Using geographic information science (GIS) and spatial statistics, we explore how neighborhoods change after they have already gentrified, and continue to gentrify further – a process that urban researchers call “super-gentrification” or “hyper-gentrification.”
