Part 2 of 3 shows exploring the growing "We Buy Houses Fast Cash" sign collection pulled-up and yanked-down by Joey Chaffee of Rochester, NY
"Why do you want to buy houses so fast?" - asks Joe and Ray Ray as they call the numbers...
Varying definitions of "Gentrification", Rochester's history of redlining, racial covenants, subsidized white surburban mortgages, and white disinvestment are presented; along with "new urbanism" and local "affordable housing" developments using regional median incomes.
