Episode 1: Mouth to Ear

A row of brownstones in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Rents in some Brooklyn neighborhoods have doubled and tripled in recent years.

Gentrification is something everyone is talking about -- and the conversation is often heated. It's a complicated idea with a range of factors: race, class, history, policy. And of course there is the personal experience that we each bring to the table.

Take a walk in Bedford-Stuyvesant with Monica Bailey, a resident of the neighborhood for more than 30 years. She'll show you the home she lost.

Sit in the office of a Brooklyn developer and listen to him work the phones. He'll talk tactics for going after foreclosures.

These are the people affected by change -- and the people who are bringing it. Meet them up close and follow the wave of gentrification deeper into Brooklyn.
