Thanks for the great insight into the gentrification of SF. I left the Mission District in 1992 - pushed out by rising rents and drive-by shootings. I could see then that the Mission was going to lose its Latino flavor. I haven't been back for a long time but it was informative to read your thoughts. I live in Albuquerque, NM now and we are currently undergoing what we like to call the Californification of Albuquerque. Of course the current economy has lots of development projects on hold. Hopefully this ecomomic crisis will help us as a people to re-evaluate our values and begin to create a different kind of world.

Thanks for your post Judith! It's sad, but this kind of gentrification is occuring everywhere as space becomes less abundant.
