Cultures Clash The Trials Of Living With Wealthy Newcomers

By Teresa Montez, published on Apr 28, 2009

I grew up in one of those rapidly gentrifying New York Neighborhoods. You know the ones that no one ever imagined would be hot spots for college students and tourists. My former working class Latino neighborhood now re-christened with a trendy new name is often written about in New York Magazine and gets droves of visitors who never would have set foot here when I grew up. Many of my neighbors have been forced out; all of the bodegas have been closed and replaced with boutiques with prices so foul as to be insulting. But I am writing today about an often unseen consequence of gentrification.... (more)

The Scent Of A Human: Eau De Schwinn?

By L DeSilva-Johnson, published on Apr 16, 2009

TheGray Ladywonders this morning if New York can truly (re)vert -- or reinvent -- itself into Neue Amsterdam via bikes.Her focus du jour is theDutch "It" bicycle , and the question is that of how to look delicious(ly continental) while doing so.

Obama-sarkozy: The War Of The Worlds

By JN PAQUET, published on Apr 8, 2009

...friends).

And the first French “people” President started to think bigger and travelled all over the world to spread the good word, i.e. he was the “Saviour of the World”. Didn’t he give lessons to other world leaders at the United Nations, in New York? Didn’t he create a new treaty to save the European Union from sinking?
