Peter joins us to discuss his new book, "How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood." How the popular media description of gentrification focuses too much on the individual. Gentrification as a symptom of inequality. How and why Manhattan was turned from a manufacturing hub to a real estate and office space center. The racist and anti-socialist development of suburbs in postwar America. Redlining. The 1970s as an intentional low point for cities. The subsequent takeover of cities by developers. Follow Peter: @ptrmsk
