Most might think Gentrification is okay. That it results in higher City value and worth. Unfortunately, this is not true. For a short time, after all the past residents are moved out and new residents move in, and after the monies for 'sprucing' up the place is spent and residents are willing to pay the new 'prices', there comes a time when the 'normal' begins to set back in. Crime begins to reenter, drugs, music, the rowdy, etc. But because the new residents are unfamiliar with the 'statistics' of that area, they are unsure how to do deal with the 'local' crime. They expect their life to be as it was in their own home town when they were free to do as they pleased using their monies. But after moving into a Gentrified place with the same monies, they expect that their monies is or should provide for the same kind of 'fun' and 'enjoyment' and 'comfortableness' it did in their own home town. Sure the 'other kinds' might not be around and sure the 'similar kinds' might move in, but sooner than later, the city will be known for exorbitant prices with alot less future hopefuls of wanting to move into that city. Let's take Honolulu Hawaii for an example. Honolulu is the 3rd most expensive city to live in in the U.S. but the quality of life, as far as jobs, earning potential, family possibilities, to the cost of living in it is not up the the standards of other 5th or 6th or 10th or 15th most expensive cities to live in. But these costs excite many to want to relocate into a city where $$ is flashed and the climate seems good. However when you take a look at all the hopeful residents that moved to Hawaii for a possible future life in it, and when you see how many have returned back to their home broken hearted and a bit more lonely, it goes to show that even when Gentrification occurs, the monies with the similar monies holding people will not hinder the 'normal' to set back in. I don't think I need to explain that 'normal' does not mean crime. Normal means normal. Family, wholesomeness, the regular.
