New York for Sale: Community Planning Confronts Global Real Estate

new york for sale tom angotti guide

On Tuesday, November 18, at 6:30 p.m., Urban Center Books and the MAS Planning Center will co-host a book talk by author, planner, academic, and activist Tom Angotti on his latest book, New York for Sale, chronicling the rise of grassroots planning in New York, and drawing heavily on the Atlas of Community-Based Plans.

“Too many books focus merely on the problems of center cities or propose planning solutions only applicable in greenfield sites. Angotti chronicles a significant alternative – the 100 or more community-based plans developed in New York City since the 1960s. This is an important and compelling story of ‘urban policy from the bottom up.” – Ann Fosyth, Department of City and Regional Planning, Cornell University reviewing New York For Sale.

Angotti, who serves as Director of the Hunter College Center for Community Planning and Development, and is a founding member of the Community-Based Planning Task Force, will present his compelling new book on how community-based planning confronts the market forces that drive New York City real estate. Reception to follow.
