Marilyn Reynolds bought her West Oakland home in 2001 for $600,000. In 2010, after her husband’s work dried up and they split up, she was forced to sell it for $180,000 – to avoid foreclosure. Reynolds isn’t alone. Today, new businesses and families from the suburbs are moving in and changing the social landscape. Can a neighborhood be reborn and still maintain a sense of community?
