DC Gentrification Report

A new report details the rise of gentrification in the District of Columbia and other cities around the country.

When it comes to Washington, D.C., and the ever-shifting racial statistics of its population… gentrification is always a topic of discussion.  That’s not new.  What is new is a report released this week about it.   The report tells us in detail what many have long-suspected… that D.C. is the most gentrified city in America.  How did this happen and what does it mean for the city’s residents?
