Who prospers in “comeback” cities? It’s become more and more obvious that it’s often only the ultra-affluent — just try living in Manhattan anymore if you aren’t. And certainly in Cleveland, the contrast between the well-heeled folks swelling Cleveland’s downtown and paying big bucks for events at an arena tax dollars are paying to gussy up and those trying to eke out survival in Glenville or Mount Pleasant.
Alan Mallach, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progressive, has written a new book called The Divided City: Poverty and Prosperity in Urban America. In it he looks at urban revitalization policies and the impacts they have on different socio-economic classes of people.
He’ll be one of several panelists talking about these issues at the Roberta Steinbacher Atrium of Cleveland State University’s Levin College of Urban Affairs moderated by Roland V. Anglin, the dean of Levin College of Urban Affairs. It’s free and open to the public. Register here.
