When the Olympics come bulldozing through your town, it's usually the poor and working class who have to make way.
There's no reason to suspect Chicago will be any different if the Games come here in 2016.
"Olympic venues have been proposed in several parts of the city, including the North, South and Near West sides," Loury writes. "But some of the deepest fears about gentrification have come from South Side residents."
Loury and the Reporter found by looking at voter registration data that the Washington Park area - where the Olympic stadium would be built - is among the top three parts of the city with the highest residential mobility.
"In several census tracts surrounding the location of the Olympic Stadium, more than 50 percent of registered voters who were found had relocated," Loury writes. "The same was true of several census tracts in the Lincoln Park community area, where tennis events will be held, and of areas to the north and east of Douglas Park, where a pair of cycling venues would be built for the Games."
If history proves a reliable guide, the Olympics may be coming to a neighborhood near you, but you may no longer be able to afford sticking around to enjoy them.
