Tales of Two Cities

Lind, Diana
September 2010
Next American City;Fall2010, Issue 28, p8
The author reflects on the continuing transformation in 2010 of the cities of Detroit, Michigan and New Orleans, Louisiana which were once shackled by problems of poverty and population loss. He argues that New Orleans' future depends on whether it can implement environmental sustainability measures at the cost of eliminating some historical neighborhoods, and that Detroit's call for holistic change is due to its desire to break cleanly from its past. He observes that the reinvention of the two cities will reflect the pace of change across the country.
