Gentrification in Buffalo

Latest post up at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Urban geography of the Talent Economy.

Subject Article: "Is Progress Pushing People Out in Buffalo?"

Other Links: 1. "Portland Is Dying."
2. "Sunburn Belt: Legacy Costs Of Sprawl."
3. "Urban Decline in Rust-Belt Cities."

Postscript: The Cleveland Fed uses a term I haven't encountered before, "reverse gentrification." It's normative. Gentrification is good. Reverse gentrification is bad. Are those the only two choices for neighborhoods?

Update: The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland has the commentary back up. I previously linked to a cached version. I've updated the link at Pacific Standard, too.
