Define “gentrification.” How did this come into play with the Near North Branch, Cabrini Green and the Gold Coast?

gentrification refers to when the government invests in a community to fix up deteriorating infrastructures, incentives for redevelopment, or improve rental properties.

This came into play when the government built the Near North Branch to accomplish one of their primary goals, and that was to encourage Cabrini Green to develop more established buildings in their area.
