As the culminating project of an NYU Gallatin/Urban Democracy Lab sponsored Spring 2015 undergraduate course, this exhibit explores neighborhood change in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods of South Williamsburg and Bushwick.  It includes archival photographs and documents from the Brooklyn Historical Society, the Brooklyn Public Library, and the Tamiment Library, as well as original pieces from photographer Meryl Meisler.  The entire exhibit was collaboratively designed, written, and installed by NYU students.  The course was developed and taught by Urban Democracy Lab Assistant Director Rebecca Amato.
