The Bayview is a rapidly developing neighborhood, as we wrote last week, and with those changes comes a good deal of concern: that original residents will be pushed out, and with them will go the community's character.

BayviewLIVE, a free, daylong block party that took place on Saturday, Oct. 22, aimed to celebrate the neighborhood amid this transition with hip-hop -- including headliner Jidenna and local rapper-activist Equipto -- alongside graffiti, DJs and more. Festival founder and community organizer Tyra Fennell told KQED Arts she estimates more than 2,000 people attended over the course of the day.
