Past Is Prologue

In the 1950's entire Boston communities were razed under the rubric of "Urban Development" without consent and in many cases without alternative housing. Those who were relocated more than likely found themselves in housing ill suited to their needs. One ironic part is that these communities were once seen as places where low-income and ethnic minorities could be relegated as cast offs.

Albany Street is the only street that remains of the New York Streets neighborhoods.

There is still inequity in affordable and appropriately standardized housing, and displacement (i.e. "climate change gentrification"). And this pattern is reflected in other critical aspects of life. Those who may have thought they were exempt can also be impacted.
