From Sunset Park to East New York, barely a neighborhood in Brooklyn isn’t ensconced in its own version of the gentrification debate. Beyond the posturing and the rhetoric is a nuanced history and present day reality that’s neither all good, nor all bad. Join Matthew Schuerman, author of "Newcomers: Gentrification and Its Discontents"; Kay Hymowitz, Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of "The New Brooklyn: What It Takes to Bring a City Back"; and James Rodriguez, professor of history at Guttman and contributor to the book "Racial Inequality in New York City Since 1965", for a balanced examination of a heated topic. Moderated by Jarrett Murphy, executive editor of City Limits.

Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society
