One of the nice things about living in a gentrifying neighborhood is that you get to watch the community grow and develop and you see your property values rise.
One of the downsides...you wind up living near people who have not been gentrified out yet.
Case in point: my neighbors in the rental next door. Last night, a little after 0200, they were outside trying to jump-start one of the beater hoopti cars in their driveway, much to the annoyance of Audie Murphy Dog, Protector of the Realm, who growled and barked at them out of the window and thus brought it to my attention.
This makes me wonder why a whole house full of people who have no need to get up to go to work in the morning (because those of us who DO get up and go to work pay all their bills) would need to try to get a car started at such an hour.
Come on, gentrification....
