Being born in the City of Yonkers, this book was very much worth reading. As a teenager, I never understood what all the fuss was about until I read this book. To this day, Yonkers has never been the same. Judge Sands has indeed destroyed a great city....Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

as an urban planning student, i've read a lot about housing, about zoning, and about government. but it is rare to come across a page-turner. i couldn't put this book down. a tragic tale, but so wonderfully written it was the first recommended reading i've thoroughly enjoyed. i learned a lot from this book. belkin covers the story from both sides, with equal passion alotted. if you have any interest in government, sociology, housing, or have even just seen yonkers on a map, do yourself a favor and read this book.Was this review helpful?
