Gentrification in Harlem

How do you feel about the gentrification/changes occurring in Harlem?

"As an African American Professional, I am disgusted by the gentrification/changes that are occurring.  I have noticed the staggering amount of non-black faces that are being welcomed in the community while my black neighbors are being forced to move, the question is where?  When the whole city seems to be about gentrification."

Has any of the gentrification occurring in Harlem affected you directly or indirectly, and ifso, is it negative or positive?

"Negativity - Prices are up, service is down, community is being divided.  I am being questioned by my "new" neighbors when I am trying to enter my own apartment building."
