All the Things Rich People Ruined for Everyone Else: A Thread

Once upon a time in a small American city, way back before it became the “hip” town it’s known as today, there was a beautiful natural cold spring that the locals shared in harmony all throughout the warmer months. There was plenty of space for everyone and admittance was free, so long as locals took care of the beautiful land. One day, a bunch of rich people from a bigger, more expensive city decided to relocate to the unassuming town because they heard it was dirt cheap. Fast forward several years and now that same cold spring is a hellish landscape of wealthy yuppies who took over, built nearby condos and parking lots, totally ruining the whole vibe. A tale as old as time.

If this scenario feels all too familiar, get ready for this thread full of examples of times rich people ruined things for everyone else.
