The article offers information on gentrification and city planning. Lance Freeman in his book "There Goes the Hood: Views of Gentrification from the Group Up" considers what residents themselves think of the revisions in two New York City neighborhoods. In his conversations with residents of Harlem and of Brooklyn's Clinton Hill, Freeman learned some surprising realities including the fact that poor residents and those without a college education were less likely to relocate if they resided in gentrifying neighborhoods. Philip L. Jackson and Robert Kuhlken noted the problems of planning in the Western states in their book "A Rediscovered Frontier: Land Use and Resource Issues in the New West."
