Join Nation Books author Peter Moskowitz at the New York Public Library's Mid-Manhattan Branch on Monday, March 20 at 6:30pm. Moskowitz will discuss his book How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood which uncovers the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification in New Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco, and New York.
The term gentrification has become a buzzword to describe the changes in urban neighborhoods across the country, but we don't realize just how threatening it is. It means more than the arrival of trendy shops, much-maligned hipsters, and expensive lattes. The very future of American cities as vibrant, equitable spaces hangs in the balance. A vigorous, hard-hitting expose, How to Kill a City reveals who holds power in our cities — and how we can get it back.
