Perfectly Nice Neighbors, Ep 7: Theory (Sylvie Tissot)

An exploration of "Good Neighbors: Gentrifying Diversity in Boston's South End" by Sylvie Tissot, a book that traces the history of a neighborhood that did exactly what Jane Jacobs prescribed. How exactly does gentrification work? And is Ajey an archetypal example of the gentrifiers he so fears?
