Description: Newcomers to older neighborhoods are usually perceived as destructive, but as A Neighborhood That Never Changes demonstrates, many gentrifiers seek to preserve the authentic local flavor of their new homes, rather than ruthlessly remake them. Drawing won ethnographic research in four distinct communities-the Chicago neighborhoods of Andersonville and Argyle and the New England towns of Provincetown and Dresden-Japonica Brown-Saracino paints a colorful portrait of how residents new and old, from wealthy gay homeowners to Portuguese fishermen, think about gentrification.
