Today Isaac Simpson looks at the path of gentrification through Frogtown (aka Elysian Valley), which was once a refuge for Latinos pushed out of Chavez Ravine. The artists and nonprofits who found the neighborhood a few years back are starting to get nervous about newer, more corporate arrivals, and Simpson wonders "Can Frogtown be saved from being just another neighborhood in the long Angeleno tradition of the rich getting what they want and the poor having to live with it? Can a neighborhood be both community-focused and 'cool' at the same time?" [LAW]
