Editorial Reviews

Review

Housing, historically one of most perplexing problems, turns out to be a fascinating perspective from which to assess our incomparable city. Professor Plunz provides an erudite, revealing, and relentlessly engaging portrait of a great urban place and its people. -- Review

Review

Plunz provides an erudite, revealing, and relentlessly engaging portrait of a great urban place and its people. One would think the recollection of so many cycles of high-mindedness, ruthless exploitation, and damned foolishness would only exacerbate the discouragement we feel in the face of the intractable housing problems of our times. Somehow, that is not the case, for one is more impressed by the energy and the ingenuity, and the funny mix of social vision and business acumen upon which New York has been so unsatisfactorily but magnificently built.

(Kent Barwick, President, The Municipal Art Society of New York)
