What harm was done to them? You also didn't define authenticity. I would loved to have seen that and then a juxtaposition of the definition with current affairs. For example, 'authenticity' is an acceptance of a populations contributions, culture, and influence on a city and its unrepentant promotion of those values.
I'm glad you enjoyed the article. In regards to the Central American vendors, the harm did not come directly from the hipsters who 'discovered' them - this actually helped them quite a bit by transforming a casual operation into full-fledged food-serving business. The harm came when the city regulators took notice of them due to their increase in popularity and came close to shutting them down.
I would refer you to Zukin's book for a more detailed analysis as she does a great job describing the sequence of events. If you agree with the idea that authenticity is a result of "a continuous process of living and working, a gradual buildup of everyday experience" then how does the mass movement of a new group of people into a neighborhood yuppie, hipster, or immigrant not contribute to the "continuous process" of neighborhood development. I just have an issue with labeling lower and working class neighborhoods as "authentic" and everything else "inauthentic.

Especially since, more than likely, the citizens of these working class neighborhoods would love to escape the authentic-ness or lower classiness as I like to think of it that everyone else seems to be imposing upon them. I swear I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just have to write a paper on the topic of authenticity especially in urban spaces and am trying to find anyone who will help me hammer through my ideas. I would absolutely love it if you could point me in any direction, because honestly I am pretty lost and change my mind every 30 minutes.
