Season 1 Episode 2 Gentrification
Neighborhoods that see a rapid increase of wealthy tenants can become foreign to those who know its history. Displacement of long term residents and erasure of cultural landmarks can make these changes feel like a loss or even a theft. Just as violence in the first episode steals our feelings of familiarity, gentrification can do the same thing, making once familiar neighborhoods and our place in them seem strange to us.
