NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 6: Pedestrians walk past a Starbucks coffee shop on 125th Street November 6, 2003 in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. Housing and property values in Harlem are skyrocketing, as national business chains and affluent whites from around New York have begun to move there in recent years. The gentrification has angered many long-time Harlem residents, many of who rent their homes and businesses and are being pressured to move out by landlords as rental prices rise.
