Gentrification and minority displacement are changing neighborhoods across the city. Ida Susser, professor of anthropology at Hunter and the author of "Norman Street: Poverty and Politics in an Urban Neighborhood," a classic work on Williamsburg, Brooklyn, has recently published an updated edition that covers the changes and controversies affecting today's Williamsburg. Joining Dr. Susser for a wide-ranging conversation about the changing racial, ethnic and cultural and economic demographics of Williamsburg and other areas of the city will be the City Council member for Williamsburg, Stephen Levin, and Rolando Guzman, Deputy Director Of Community Preservation, St. Nicks Alliance, a community non-profit serving low- to moderate-income North Brooklyn residents since 1975.
Moderating the panel will be WNYC reporter and author Jim O'Grady, formerly the director of research for the Center for an Urban Future. Part of the Changing New York programming series.
