Whether you like it or not, the 2012 Olympics are changing the face of East London.  Stratford is experiencing, for some, long awaited renewal.  Others think oppositely.  This bustling immigrant community is getting a make over and gentrification.  New tube stations, infrastructure, planning, homes, bars and restaurants.  The NY Times has highlighted the changes in a small article about Stratford.  Check it out.  Also, if you want to get the latest info or see pictures on the developing Olympic park, check out the BBC News link.
