What is home? Through looking at the history of redlining in New York City, Educational Video Center Youth Producers explore the effects of gentrification on a rapidly changing Washington Heights community, and the resulting increases in housing costs across New York City. The film profiles EVC Youth Producer Raimundo Delacruz, as he navigates the changes in his home, while wrestling with the possibility that things may never be the same.
