“My Brooklyn” Screening: Who Has a Right to Live in Our City?
In an iconic, expensive city like New York, what’s the difference between good change and bad change? How can we make the city safe and attractive without displacing entire communities? And in an era of downward mobility and income inequality, what’s the line between “gentrifier” and “victim of gentrification”?
The documentary “My Brooklyn” tells the story of an aggressive plan to make over the Fulton Mall through the eyes of a gentrifier who has also experienced displacement in Brooklyn since the 1980s. We’ll be talking to director Kelly Anderson and other guest panelists about race, class, the future of New York, and generational solutions to preserve the urban fabric of our city.
