Cities: Ebb and Flow

Communities do not grow along straight paths that slope gently in an upward direction. Rather, they twist and turn every which way, as social, economic and political paths pus them first one way and then another. Cities that are on the verge of crumbling can, at a later date, become a financial center and go to place for people who have the cash to afford them. It might be bustling and at the top of its games these days but, believe it or not, New York City almost went bankrupt during the 1970s.

This booklet will grant you a better understanding of the ebb an flow of cities. And as it does, it might make you more aware of people and the interactions that can simultaneously bound them together or tear them apart.
