This is one of the final gentrification cartoons I will be posting. Not that I couldn't do a jillion more but next week the Mechanics Plan will be posted and it will be interesting to see the reaction to a solution to this problem.
This toon was inspired by a fruit stand that used to be on Myrtle Ave In Brooklyn. There was a really old Italian lady that was there early in the morning arranging things. Her sons ran it and you could get deals like a dozen eggs for a dollar and fresh fruit. It really is sad to see family run things like this just vanish from places like New York, Boston and everywhere else.
