A conference on gentrification was held Saturday at the Bronx Documentary Center.
A panel of urban development experts and residents discussed affordable housing displacement and the future of the state's poorest borough.
The goal of the conference was to educate residents and business owners about the changes that are happening in the community.
Some Bronx residents are concerned that they will be forced out of their homes as rents in the borough continue to increase.
The average Bronx resident earns just over $34,000 in annual income, according to a report from 24/7 Wall St.
