A Vanished Neighborhood Endures in Memory

Nate Schweber of the New York Times writes about a reunion of people who lived in a New York neighborhood that was obliterated during urban renewal. The demolition of the neighborhood is also the subject of a documentary, “The Tragedy of Urban Renewal,”  by Jim Epstein. Many years ago, I was involved in a similar, extremely gratifying project in Tucson that celebrated a historic, mostly Latino neighborhood that was wiped out to make way for the Tucson Community Center.
