WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

I Am Park Slope: Will diversity be part of our future?, part of the BAX Platform series, explores the "fast-changing, perpetually gentrifying" neighborhood. Over the last two decades, the influx of money has fed the neighborhood's big bang of real estate offices, luxury condos, high-end sushi bars and children's designer clothing shops--which have replaced much of the ethnic and racial diversity that once defined Park Slope. Panelists include: Chris Owens, founder and chairman of PRIDE; CB 6 Chair Craig Hammerman; Brooklyn Pride's Doreen De Jesus; Marianna Gaston, part founder of Brooklyn New School; Javier Gaston Greenberg; Pauline Toole; Gene Russianoff, staff attorney for New York Public Interest Research Group; Susan Fox; Nancy McDermott, a founding member of NY Salon; and Emily Millay Haddad.
