NYU Furman Center recently released a new report that analyzes New York City's gentrifying neighborhoods over time to find shifting demographics, and identify the most rapidly gentrifying areas in the City.

A special report on gentrification (PDF) by the NYU Furman Center explores gentrification within the context of New York City's neighborhoods. Of the city's 55 neighborhoods, the report classifies 15 as "gentrifying" and analyzes how their housing and population have changed over the past two decades.

The 15 neighborhoods identified as gentrifying are:

  1. Williamsburg/Greenpoint 1. Central Harlem 1. Lower East Side/Chinatown 1. Bushwick 1. East Harlem 1. Morningside Heights/Hamilton Heights 1. Bedford Stuyvesant 1. North Crown Heights/Prospect Heights 1. Washington Heights/Inwood 1. Mott Haven/Hunts Point 1. Astoria 1. Sunset Park 1. Morrisania/Belmont 1. Brownsville/Ocean Hill 1. South Crown Heights
