The most annoying part (for me personally) are people who move here and don't know their way around, and decry our lack of amenities that we actually have, but because they haven't learned the neighborhood, don't know where they are--or, if they are pointed out, complain because it's not exactly the same as similar amenities they know from wherever they came from. Or complaining about our lack of a local product that was common in their old city--sorry, if you want Chicago style pizza, your best bet is to move to Chicago.

Most likely Brooklyn because I think his member name is short for Williamsburg.

All of this boils down to how do I address the issue of gentrification; specifically, how do I be apart of the solution instead of being part of the problem without living in a place where I would fear getting mugged?
What is the solution? What is the problem?
