Print Displaced From This Place?

Bushwick, like many New York City neighborhoods, is changing. Between 1990 and 2014, rents in Bushwick rose 44% – twice as much as the citywide average! From bodega to bus stop, people are talking about displacement. What is displacement and how does it happen? Why Bushwick and what can we do about it?

In our latest Urban Investigation, CUP collaborated with public high school students from EBC High School for Public Service to delve into displacement.

Students hit the streets to survey Bushwick residents, speak with community organizers, interview elected officials and policy experts, and dive deep into the issue. The crew gathered what they learned and teamed up with designer Kyle Richardson to create Displaced From This Place?, a booklet that details what they discovered about displacement.
