HARD TIMES FOR HARLEM STORE OWNER
As Mayor Michael Bloomberg marches onward with the gentrification of New York City, the landscape and the ethnicity of neighborhoods changes rapidly. Some call it urban renewal and some call it opportunity. But however one prefers to call it, the personality and flavor of the "hoods" that once were, are being removed. Sadly, never to be seen again.
And as the "Egg cream" became extinct so goes the sounds,colors and the voices of the places that we once called home.
YFP is proud to present a series dedicated to some of those people, brought to you by documentarian, Christopher Williams.
