#MBMHMC: "Boricua" Humboldt Park

[VIDEO] The latest episode of Jahmal Cole's My Block My Hood My City takes us to the city neighborhood of Humboldt Park on the northwest side. Predominantly Puerto Rican this neighborhood was noted as diverse by their local alderman - Roberto Maldonado. Duration of this video is about five and a half minutes.

Ald. Maldonado who represents Chicago's 26th ward has something of an extended discussion with Cole over...the dreaded G word. Humboldt Park has been undergoing gentrification as of late. I share this episode as this is likely the discussion as the new Whole Foods Market Englewood is being built at 63rd & Halsted.

Is there anything you would like to say regarding gentrification?
