Comment Of The Day

"No part of the city, or the entire metropolitan area, is absolutely crime free. But open gun battles between rival gangs is too much for neighborhood of the year. Uptown first needs to restore law and order to its neighborhood before it tries to compete for this designation. And it needs to solve the problem of homeless people living in the streets. As far as gentrification is concerned, in spite of Shiller's attempts to stop or retard it, Uptown will gentrify because its location makes it highly amenable for it, so powerful economic forces will bring it about." —CaptainVideo [Curbed Cup: The Loop v. Uptown]
