Starbucks recognizes that its stores are often a sign of a gentrified neighborhood and has opened a new Starbucks concept space in Brooklyn that hopes to add deeper value to the community, instead of taking away from it.

The new space is located in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood and will serve up delicious caffeinated creations to the neighborhood. What's more, is that this space will only hire local residents, and will also serve as a hub for community programming and job planning. The particular Starbucks location will double as a training center for young people looking to enhance their career skills, while also hosting open mic nights and poetry readings that will highlight local talent.

Starbucks' concept space in Brooklyn hopes to deepen the neighborhood's sense of community, rather than disrupting it.
