Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Mele (sociology, SUNY at Buffalo) examines a century of changes in the Lower East Side neighborhoods of New York City, drawing on the research of the new urban sociology school to demonstrate how cultural perceptions of this distinctive area are essential to the confluence of political/economic land usage and the resistance of residents against neighborhood transformation. He demonstrates how redevelopers symbolically include the ambiance of the bohemian, avant-garde, and dangerous aspects of the Lower East Side while working toward their displacement. Mele provides a comprehensive analysis of the neighborhood's transformation, complete with useful maps, photographs, and an extensive bibliography. The material is directed toward an educated reader well versed in urban affairs. Recommended for academic libraries.

6 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Brett Somers on May 4, 2000
Format: Paperback
I reccomend this book for anyone; New Yorker or not, who is interested in the current trends in this economy, including the selling of our nation's great art and humanity to pave the way for malls. A thrilling story with wonderful research, not to mention well-written by an intelligent person who I admire most for telling the truth.
Peace Be With You, Brett Somers
