Neighbors: Conservation in a Changing Community told the story of the neighborhood’s gentrification as seen through the eyes of twelve residents. If you missed it, Neighbors will be shown again, this Thursday, January 15 at 6:30 PM at USES, located at the corner of Columbus and Massachusetts Avenues. Here's a link to the USES site.

After the film there will be a discussion, moderated by Byron Rushing as was the case last year. Refreshments are served.
