Share on Nextdoor

What happens when a long-neglected neighborhood undergoes revitalization, bringing in new residents, wealth and development?

That’s the central question in this week’s cover story about the Bartlett Park neighborhood in South St. Pete. Gentrification, and all the questions it raises about race and class, is a sensitive subject, but that’s all the more reason for dialogue. So, take a look at the story and add in your own comments about the positives and negatives of gentrification, any points you think I missed or your own experiences living in a “neighborhood in transition.”

And keep checking the blog this week for more parts of the story that didn’t make it in the print edition.
