Hostos Community College To Host Film & Talk On Gentrification Thursday at 6PM


Join Banana Kelly Improvement Association along with Andrew Padilla, filmmaker of El Barrio Tours at Hostos Community College for a screening of the film showcasing the sensitive and often emotional topic of gentrification.

The Bronx and particularly Melrose, Mott Haven, and the Lower Concourse in the South Bronx are already seeing the impacts of what some would call gentrification as developments – along with rents continue to rise.

Following the screening there will be an opportunity for discussion so it’s important to come to this event and come together as a community regardless of what side of the issue you’re on.

The event is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, November 7th at 6PM in the MBJ Cafeteria, Building C at Hostos Community College.
