Today: Wednesday, February 4, 2015 – We cover the BRIC House event entitled “Brooklyn For Sale: The Price of Gentrification” and delve into the emotional, political, cultural, and racial issues that arise in a gentrifying neighborhood. Today’s perspective is from District Council member Robert Cornegy.
