Notions of loss, death, and resiliency from the 1960s to the present are brought together in this chapter to examine the effects of urban renewal and gentrification on Puerto Rican residents. It delineates how Puerto Ricans and other Latinos transformed “default” neighborhoods into desirable ones, making evident a community’s restorative ability as well as the new challenges that these achievements produce.

Keywords:   urban renewal, gentrification, default neighbourhoods, loss, death, resiliency
