Introduction to the phenomenon, main examples, biggest problems

Start: ancient Rome and Roman Britain, where large villas were replacing small shops (3rd century A.D.)
Origin - old french word /genterise/ - 'of gentle birth' (14th c.) and 'people of gentle birth' (16th c.).
In England, 'Landed gentry' denoted the social class, consisting of gentlemen.
An early reference in "Memoirs and Proceedings of the Manchester Literary & Philosophical Society", written in 1888.
the term "gentrification" used in 1964 by Ruth Glass to describe the influx of middle-class people displacing lower-class worker residents in urban neighborhoods; (London, Islington)
A bit of history:
1. Poor, unattractive district
2. New residents
3. Creating a new society and social life
middle class
creative class worker
Think about your neighborhood!

Local governments may favor gentrification because of the increased tax base associated with the new high-income residents, as well as because of other perceived benefits of moving poor people and rehabilitating deteriorated areas.
The average income increases and average family size decreases
Displacement of the poorer, pre-gentrification residents, who are unable to pay increased rents, and property taxes, or afford real estate - they have to move to a cheaper community
Great place to live!
