    Sorry, Andy, I didn’t move to Mt. Vern for its personality. I moved here despite its personality. I do not think that the old “personality” of parking lots and abandoned buildings is worth keeping.

    I read the article and despite it sounding like a blatant plug for City Vista, I did think it made some good general points in theory about what gentrification could potentially do. I don't know the history of the neighborhood well enough to comment intelligently, but I can say that I do get a commercial and not necessarily an authentic sense of neighborhood from B&P.
