As the title of this thread indicates, the fouth section of today's WSJ is devoted to some of the issues of city reinvigoration. One article is about the relationship of crime to redevelopment.
There is a good mention in that article about progress in Detroit's Springwells Village. The writer is notably less enthusiastic about the gentrification of that neighborhood than he/she is about another profiled neighborhood in Washington D. C., (no Whole Foods Planned for us!) and the Springwells neighborhood advance seems more tenuous than the other profiled neighborhoods. Still, it is overall positive.
Hey, where is "Springwells Village? I can guess, but I've never heard of such a neighborhood organization.
I can't post the link and I hope someone else reading here can. The whole section was worth springing for a copy.

What? They didn't say that the way to revitalize cities is with superblocks, freeway expansions and walled-off "campuses" with "green space" in downtowns? Boy, are they behind the curve or what?

Dammit, I might just have to buy a copy. I just wish the money wouldn't go toward paying their editorial board....

apart from the editorial page, the WSJ was ranked more liberal than the NYT. Hard to understand but that's what I read.
