NY Mag Covers the West Egg-ification of San Francisco
Detroit in the 1940s. Wall Street in the 1980s. And now San Francisco. Kevin Roose of New York Magazine writes about what this succession means for our city, once known for its diversity instead of its raging class wars. Roose’s piece is part of a larger NY Mag series, which chronicles stories of those affected by evictions and other ripple effects of San Francisco’s tech boom (all are interesting, but Daniel Alarcón’s is a must-read).
All eyes, even those blinking over 2,000 miles away, are on the West Egg-ification of San Francisco (the red beacons of Sutro Tower can play the part of Daisy’s green light). Only time will tell if this story has a happier ending than Fitzgerald’s; until then, check out Roose’s piece below.
