In New York for Sale Tom Angotti places his deep knowledge of New York's development policy, his years of active personal involvement, and his strategies for achieving greater equity within a sustained narrative. The book is welcome reading for everyone who has followed his incisive commentaries on development conflicts in the city over the years. His acute observations of the threat to community residents underlying the drive for 'global competitiveness' and his analysis of the tactics available to progressive community planners constitute essential reading for everyone concerned with using planning as a means to obtaining a more just and democratic city.(Susan S. Fainstein, Department of Urban Planning and Design, Harvard University Graduate School of Design)
Too many books focus merely on the problems of center cities or propose planning solutions only applicable in greenfield sites. Angotti chronicles a significant alternative -- the 100 or more community-based plans developed in New York City since the 1960s. This is an important and compelling story of 'urban policy from the bottom-up.(Ann Forsyth, Department of City & Regional Planning, Cornell University)
