Buena Vista for Fortune

Umbrelina Martinez

I revisited the Buena Vista Mobile Park in Palo Alto for Fortune magazine. Situated in the heart of Silicon Valley it provides low income housing to working class families, more than 400 people. And they had to put up a long fight to keep the property out of the hands of developers. The story appeared in the January issue of Fortune that’s dedicated to the shrinking middle class.
