Gentrification- Yorkville

It actually took me forever to figure out how to post on the blog!Anyway I was walking down Yorkville the other day so.... here's a little something about Yorkville....Yorkville is now being engulfed by uber posh condominiums but way back in the 70s it was hippie central... (other interesting things... Davenport road was an ancient Indian trail), Heres an article by Shawn Micallef about Yorkville: http://www.eye.net/eye/issue/issue_04.07.05/city/yorkville.html
(I did a bit of my Flaneur Assignment on Yorkville, so when I find the before and after picture I will post them.)
