Rennovated in 2015, Ralph Brooks Park at the corner of Tasker and 20th streets is named after a 7-year-old Point Breeze resident who was paralyzed by a bullet in 1998. (Emma Lee/QHYY)

From the outside, 625 South Delhi Street looks like an average Philadelphia rowhouse. But in the 1850s, it was home to Underground Railroad leaders William and Letitia Still.

    The surprising truth behind the racial dynamics of gentrification in Philly
    The changes also show up on paper. Between 2000 and 2016, median household income in the most gentrified section of the neighborhood shot up 124 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. During that same span, the data reveals that median homes prices ballooned 715 percent in the same area.
