Gentrification in Harlem

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

"Blacks have been here (Harlem) for a long time and this is our home and we don't know of another place or community.  We feel it is unfair for rents are too high to afford.  Those who have been here as long as I have, have no place or other home to go to."

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

"So far the changes have not affected me directly, however, I talked to many people who have been negatively affected.  They were being harassed by landlords."
