[VIDEO] Death of the Bodega: Video Essay and Original Rap Documenting Gentrification in Brooklyn

Death of the Bodega is a great video essay and original rap from local students and musicians Joe Amato III and Luciano Del Valle that explores how rapid gentrification has affected Brooklyn neighborhoods and local businesses.

This Project was created for the Urban Policy class offered at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering. The goal of this project is to explore the effects that Urban Renewal and Gentrification has on the neighborhood of Downtown Brooklyn. We created a custom track for this project and also created the video to go along with the track in an effort to make the project more appealing.
