The Washington City Paper recently reported on a community panel concerning gentrification in the nation’s capitol. The dialogue got contentious, with one participant stating that DC has been “invaded” by predominantly white newcomers. The event was hosted in the city’s historic U Street corridor at a restaurant called Busboys and Poets, which will be opening a new location some 3,000 miles away, right here in the Mission. Will local residents enjoy the same kind of real talk about how this neighborhood is changing?
