Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book recounts the comeback that several New York neighborhoods achieved in the 1980s and 1990s. Orlebeke (urban planning and public affairs, U. of Illinois at Chicago) focuses on the work of the New York City Housing Partnership, which led the way to recovery by building thousands of new homes for the ownership market in bombed-out neighborhoods in the South Bronx and throughout the city. Orlebeke draws on internal documents and interviews with city officials, Partnership staff, community activists, business leaders, builders, and buyers. He argues that the New York story is an example of a national community development movement that challenges the conventional pessimistic view of the urban prospect. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
