Urban–Greater DC   (Washington, D.C.)

Peter Tatian gave this presentation on gentrification in Washington, DC, to visiting foreign city planners, nongovernment organization representatives, and local government officials who were part of the International Visitor Leadership Program, sponsored by the US State Department. The presentation focused on changes in demographic and housing conditions in the city's Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods, which the group were touring as part of their visit. It shows the dramatic changes in housing costs and demographic characteristics in these neighborhoods and the city between 2000 and 2010.
