Yea, parts of Baltimore are definitely gentrifying. Fells Point, Canton, Federal Hill, Mt Vernon, Downtown, Station North, Greenmount (I'm completely shocked by Greenmount), Uplands, the neighborhoods around John's Hopkins (surprised about that area too), Westport will be starting a HUGE development in the near future with Under Armour, the Howard Street corridor is getting off the ground, Harbor Point (built from scratch). If you're riding by on 95 you'll see quite a few cranes in the air currently, and even more in the coming months.

I would say that the City of Atlanta along with Washington, District of Columbia, is a "Poster child" for "gentrification" for the past decade or so.

Why are you surprised about the neighborhoods around Johns Hopkins? Makes perfect sense to me...unless there's something especially bad about those neighborhoods that I don't know about.

A lot of St. Louis is or has already gentrified. The Central West End and surrounds, parts of downtown, Lafayette Square, Soulard, Tower Grove neighborhoods, etc, etc. Even Old North St. Louis is well and truly in gentrifying territory.

The majority of North City however has not gentrified, although that may change with the new National Geospatial Intelligence Agency being built there.

Yeah, looking at St. Louis' and thinking there's been little to no gentrification due to the lack of change on much of the north city would be like looking at Chicago and saying the same due to the lack of change on much of the South and West Sides.

Indianapolis hasn't really gentrified outside of a small handful of neighborhoods.

What about cities like Wichita , Lincoln , and Omaha ? These places ( unless I'm mistaken ) have always been considered a bit podunk when compared to their coastal counterparts , so I think it's reasonable to assume that they aren't major centers of gentrification .

Omaha actually had a really influential indie rock scene in the early 2000s. I think it's mostly gone now, but there's definitely still "hip" neighborhoods there.
