As people continue to flock to cities, gentrification is increasingly reshaping urban areas in the United States. As part of the Interdisciplinary Research Leaders program, Derek Hyra, Mindy Fullilove, and Dominic Moulden are teaming up to examine two rapidly gentrifying communities—Orange, New Jersey, and the Shaw neighborhood in Washington, D.C. By better understanding how these communities have responded to the influx of newcomers, the team hopes to help low- and moderate-income people remain in communities as they gentrify—and facilitate social interactions between newcomers and long-term residents of different socioeconomic backgrounds.
