NYC & Detroit


(fm the BC thread "Motor city")

Jeff from Michigan,
Interesting. New York has a larger design margin or more inertia to keep it running because it has or had more diverse industries and a more diverse ethnic mix. As for corrupt local minority pols using cultural sites or construction boondoggles to siphon money off the suburban voters we have that too. Our Governor's father is Basil Patterson who milks the Apollo Theater. The Census is in the best of hands. You do not have to ask about the results.

Might a *possible* inspiration for a solution be found in this story from the past?

What might it take to make something like this work?

(Wanted to post this under the "Motor City" post, but the comments are now closed.)
