Housing First: Neighborhood Gentrification As part of NPR's year-long "Housing First" project, Morning Edition airs three reports on the economics of housing for some of the neediest Americans. In the second of three reports, NPR's Ina Jaffe reports from the once-gritty neighborhood of Venice Beach, Calif., now a hip destination for more affluent renters. Low-cost housing is drying up, and the elderly and poor are being pushed out.
