Editorial Reviews


Gordon argues that Battery Park City is a remarkably successful urban development project, and that its implemented plan, prepared largely by Cooper Eckstut Associates, was an admiral combination of postmodern and new urbanist development. - Journal of American Planning Association

Superbly designed for economic development professionals [and] urban design and planning firms. - Mitchell L. Moss, New York University

By P. Weeks on December 25, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an easy read, gets straight to the point, but fails to expound on issues that leave the reading wondering. The book does whet your appetite and drive you to further research. I would certainly recommend this to anyone interested in urban planning, especially in New York City.
