Urban Revitalization on the Upper West Side of Manhattan: An Urban Managerialist Assessment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An emergent area of research on urban revitalization has focused on the influence of city managers and institutions.This framework, termed urban managerialism, is utilized to examine the linkages between institutional structure and reinvestment on the Upper West Side in Manhattan between 1970 and 1980. The results of this study suggest that a wide range of local and city-wide institutions played a major role in transforming an ethnically and racially diverse setting into one of greater homogeneity and affluence. This research framework offers insight into questions of supply and constraint and its effects on revitalization not fully addressed by competing research perspectives. -from Author
