new windows

I'm staying with friends up in Harlem for our last few days in the city. The area is undergoing gentrification, which in some cases is bad (people getting kicked out of rent-controlled housing as richer folks come in and buy it all up) and some good (crime is definitely down and a lot of falling-apart buildings are now getting fixed). Here you can see boarded up windows to try and discourage people from living inside. It looks to me like it didn't work and people made their own windows.
