Fern Alley was home to the Urban Air Market, which joined the Lower Polk Art Walk as something extra to do while checking out the galleries. It was nice, I guess, but it’s stuff like this that opens your eyes to a changing neighborhood. Change is inevitable, but undesirable if it takes the rent from $2500/mo to $3200/mo. This city’s income inequality is out of control, so when you see gentrification rolling into your area, it’s terrifying. And City Hall doesn’t seem to be worried about any of it. Keep your head down, Tenders. Maybe some of us will weather this storm.
