‘Hood Closed to Gentrifiers’ street sign gains popularity in Detroit neighborhood
DETROIT – A street sign that popped up in Detroit is gaining a lot of attention. The sign read, “Hood Closed to Gentrifiers” -- addressing a big concern among inner-city neighborhoods across the country. The man who created the sign is known as Bryce Detroit. “I would describe it as a neighborhood that is steeped in history, steeped in legacy,” Bryce Detroit said. “In particular, Black art and cultural economy.”Because of his love for the neighborhood, Bryce Detroit had the gentrification road sign installed across from the Historic Apex Bar.
