“Why Gentrification?,” *Capital City: Gentrification and the Real Estate State, *2019

by Samuel Stein, PhD candidate in Geography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and Urban Studies instructor at Hunter College. His scholarship addresses the increasingly powerful faction of government that seeks to bend public policy to support ever-rising property values. Stein has collaborated with Hum on a number of articles about how Sunset Park, Flushing, and Manhattan’s Chinatown are interwoven in a larger system of gentrification.
