Marketplace Weekend goes from New York to a special satellite bureau set up in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. An entire team of Marketplace reporters and producers spent four months there, at the intersection of York Boulevard and Figueroa Street. The name of this project is York and Fig. It’s an area undergoing rapid gentrification. There are obvious changes in the neighborhood, and more subtle stuff you only learn from close careful observation. Krissy Clark of Marketplace’s Wealth and Poverty desk, spoke with Lizzie O’Leary about her reporting.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
