The Changing City: An Excerpt from the Lower East Side


(Blocks encompassing the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area, New York City)

An interesting read on the changing landscape in the Lower East side today, courtesy of the New York Times. This empty void of land is bordered by many ethnic groups and has been the topic of political factions for decades. It will assume its new identity in the years to come as the redeveloped Seward Park Urban Renewal Area. You can check out more about this development from a prior blog post here.

This dynamic area of New York will be the subject for many posts to come, as we track this landscape in the process of Urban Transformation.
