East Harlem for Sale


Just a quick shot from "East Harlem For Sale: A Youth Perspective on How Gentrification is Changing the Community" -- an art installation put together by the Harlem Community Justice Center. The installation is the result of a summer research project by participants in the Hard HATS program that sought to examine how the East Harlem community is changing, in both positive and negative ways. Kudos to Chris and Ivan and Kate and the rest of the Harlem crew for putting it together -- and to Gene for his typically outstanding photography work.
