All about money and greed

In this letter to the South Sydney Herald of March 2012 Sue Fraser Fraser responded to Michael Shreenan’s article about Redfern becoming the next Paddington.

Reading your paper’s article by Michael Shreenan about changing Redfern into the next “Paddington” (SSH February 2012), I agree there are lots of Redfern residents who cannot afford the increases that will probably happen if more yuppies move into the area. I can see the slight changes in Redfern Street, and while this may be good to a certain degree, I do not like the changes that are going on in the inner west. I have lived here for the past 28 years and have seen changes happening in Newtown / Enmore / Erskineville / St Peters, etc. House prices through the roof that could have once been purchased for a song. Now, groovy cafes on every corner. I know this is progress but to me it is a shame we are losing “the good ole days”. It is all about money and greed.
