Through looking at the history of redlining in New York City, EVC Youth Producers explore the effects of gentrification on a rapidly changing Washington Heights community, and the resulting increases in housing costs across New York City. The film profiles EVC Youth Producer Raimundo Delacruz as he navigates the changes to his home, while wrestling with the possibility that things may never be the same. Produced by high school students who participated in EVC’s Youth Documentary Workshop, 2016.
