For generations, New York City has been a mecca for artists, writers, and other hopefuls longing to be part of its rich cultural exchange and unique social fabric. But today, modern gentrification is transforming the city from an exceptional, iconoclastic metropolis into a suburbanized luxury zone with a price tag only the one percent can afford. This is an unflinching chronicle of gentrification in the twenty-first century, and a love letter to a lost New York, by the creator of the popular and incendiary blog Vanishing New York.
