081408smartcar.jpgThere goes the neighborhood? Some Harlem residents are distressed at a sudden “epidemic” of Smart Cars parked around the ‘hood. One blogger even came out of retirement to marvel at the sight of a Smart Car parked on the street; apparently it’s a symbol of gentrification on steroids and proof that Harlem is “over.” But at least one commenter on Harlem Fur isn’t having it: “I am a teacher who moved to Harlem last year so that I could afford my rent. Blogs like this confused the hell out of me. Why is it okay to rave about the new pet store and the new restaurant but then.. oh god.. someone buys an eco-friendly trendy car, and your response is to say, ‘I'm moving out?’”
