Toward a typology of institutional influence

gentrification in New York City's Chelsea district

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper examines gentrification from an urban managerialist perspective, focusing on the role of local institutions in facilitating upgrading in Chelsea within Manhattan between 1970 and 1980. Results suggest that an array of institutions are influential, and may be grouped into 4 categories; 1) preservationist groups; 2) profit-oriented private institutions; 3) bureaucratic public institutions; and 4) non-profit groups. Set in a neighborhood context of competition and conflict, these agencies allocated resources to affect both the location and magnitude of upgrading across the 10 year period.
