What does it mean (in the context of this forum) when someone "gives you reputation" ()
sorry for the touchy-feely wording - blogger's (along w/ 'hyper-gentrification) description but i think it is apt. also agree that market forces will dictate what a spot is worth and if mom&pop can't pay then they will likely be forced out. but i don't agree that people are voting w/ their wallets - what's driving the market is who can afford to pay the astronomical rents - m&p can't, but i don't think that means what people want are the businesses that can,yes,...
