I ve heard and read enough about DC gentrification including from Derek Hyra on many radio shows to know about this issue before opening the book Still I found it an interesting and readable history of the last several decades of the District particularly ShawU StreetPerhaps the most interesting insights were into how the city developers and neighborhood associations accomplished the black branding of the gilded ghetto to make it both welcoming and cool with a whiff of danger for new White arrivals The creation of the Black Broadway narrative was largey shaped by the desire of internal and external community actors to fight certain negative iconic Black ghetto stereotypes Residents did not speak about the crime and the drugs of the 1970s and 80s rather they shared their stories of achievement and uplift In this way internal community forces were distancing the neighborhood s newly created brand from the stereotypical image of the ghettoThis is such a complex issue with moral implications Who has claim to a neighborhood or a shared space What do newcomers owe to long time residents of a neighborhood What role should the government play in maintaining the character and function of a city These uestions are largely outside the scope of the book so Hyra does not address themI do take a bit of issue with how much faith Hyra puts in shared third spaces in his final chapter about Building Euitable Communities While it s true that establishments such as Ben s Chili Bowl and Busboys Poets are patronized by a fairly diverse clientele I would be hesitant to characterize the positive interactions across races and demographic groups in these establishments as much than superficial and fleeting Hyra does not address the waning significance of public transportation as a third space that we once all shared with Uber and Lyft surging as our Metro system crumbles there are even fewer occasions for us to share space even if it meant being together stuck on a single tracking train Ultimately it s in a city s interest to support neighborhoods with a diversity of ethnicities income levels and housing with reliable public transportation
