About a year ago, Marketplace’s Wealth and Poverty team did something unusual — they set up a “pop-up” bureau in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The goal was get a street’s-eye view of the changes happening there, as hip new bars and shops replaced old businesses, as long-time residents sold their homes to young couples. This summer, the Marketplace team is revisiting Highland Park in a two-part podcast to see how the neighborhood continues to evolve. This first episode takes you inside the origins of York and Fig.
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?
