Growing up nearby in Boyle Heights, Carlos has had a front row seat to the gentrification happening in that neighborhood, and now he sees similar changes coming to the market. Carlos contemplates the hard work and contributions of his family to the community and weighs the pros and cons of new investments coming in.
