Megan Cottrell: When ‘They’ Move Into Your Neighborhood…

Cottrell discusses the new residents moving to her neighborhood, Lincoln Square. Also she mentions that some rental units are ready for new CHA transplants. What is of focus in this article are the bad habit some of these new residents bring with them such as for instance standing around hanging out shooting dice. She mentioned that she was excited because her mostly white neighborhood is seemingly more diverse now with Hispanic and Black families moving in.

Now if you read her piece, does what she says seem familiar to you? We may say the same about new residents moving to this community and we may also come to the same conclusion that she had about who "they" are and where "they" came from.
