Hi. Not grasping the point of your article. Are you simply examining or explaining a component of the process of gentrification (that's been around for a while) whereby a neighborhood map is created showing the "new" center of a neighborhood, thereby influencing a customer's decision to buy or rent? Or are you just realizing that these maps are frequently used as marketing and financing tools to assist in the process of rebuilding and revitalizing a neighborhood? It might be prudent to take a drive (or walk) through Detroit sometime where you will see blocks and blocks and blocks of abandoned brownstones and homes that have been in that state for years, long before the current recession. Maybe someday, someone, somewhere will draw a new map for Detroit's neighborhood revitalization.
