Whole Foods was the clear winner in our not-very-scientific poll about what exemplifies gentrification taking hold of a neighborhood. Of course there are more possible choices than the four we presented, including the suggestion 'community garden' that came in over twitter. Any other thoughts about what defines a yuppie influx? Leave suggestions in the comments or send them in to our tipline (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can keep a running list. If there is something we left off the list that beats Whole Foods, definitely let us know.
