This chapter explores how those who articulated the social preservation ideology and engaged in related practices while the author was in the field are similar to and different from other gentrifiers. Specifically, it compares social preservationists' demographic and cultural traits with those of the other gentrifiers in the sample. In so doing, it provides a portrait of the social location of the preservationists the author interviewed as well as of the historical and cultural location of social preservation itself, and of its relation to other sets of ideas and practices.

Keywords:   gentrifiers, social preservation, social preservation ideology, demographic traits, social location, ideas and practices
