Brooklyn Community Foundation does sweeping assessment of borough’s concerns [BK Community Foundation]

  • Main problems:  “Consequences of gentrification; opportunities for young people; the criminal justice system; immigrant communities; and racial justice”

Most jarring BK facts:

  • 3rd most economically unequal county in NY State
  • 30% of Brownsville youth not in school or employed
  • 5 of 10 poorest NYC census tracts are in BK
  • Black and Latinos = 57% of BK youth but 95% of those in juvenile detention
  • 50% of households speak a language other than English at home

Report has mostly negative view of gentrification: “Escalating housing costs and displacing tens of thousands of long-term residents from their homes…People feel they have lost agency and voice in their own neighborhoods, and are exacerbating inequities in housing, transportation, education, health, public safety and other areas of community life.”
