The Livable City

Carlos Ortiz Papers, 1940s-2006

Table of contents page clipping from The Livable City, with a statement reading "The Livable City focuses on the South Bronx, the most unlivable part of our city. With its five hundred acres of vacant land, it has become a national symbol of urban depair. But empty land, close to midtown Manhattan, close to rivers and terminals, is also a tremendous resource, and the South Bronx, Phoenix-like, is ready to rise. Here, then, is another New York - a war zone with hope."
