Mulberry, a New York Gentrification


Will New York City lose another cultural touchstone to gentrification?
— Paul Stone
 

World Premiere 2016 Tribeca Film Festival  |  Official Selection 2017 Hot Springs Film Festival

For the best cinematic experience please use headphones. Native New Yorker Paul Stone creates a stunning picturesque tribute to Little Italy - the neighborhood he has called home for half his life. Retracing the immigrant journey from Italy to the Big Apple the film laments the loss of time-worn traditions and a unique cultural heritage to ever-rising NYC real estate values. Part funny, part sad, the film unfolds from stories of its long-term residents, and the striking black and white imagery capture the neighborhood before it is completely diminished. Will New York City lose another cultural touchstone to gentrification?
