A journey to the front lines of the battle for the future of American cities, uncovering the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification--and the lives that are altered in the process. The term gentrification has become a buzzword to describe the changes in urban neighborhoods across the country, but we don't realize just how threatening it is. It means more than the arrival of trendy shops, much-maligned hipsters, and expensive lattes. The very future of American cities as vibrant, equitable spaces hangs in the balance. Peter Moskowitz's How to Kill a City takes readers from the kitchen tables of hurting families who can no longer afford their homes to the corporate boardrooms and political backrooms where destructive housing policies are devised. Along the way, Moskowitz uncovers the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification in New Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco, and New York. The deceptively simple question of who can and cannot afford to pay the rent goes to the heart of America's crises of race and inequality. In the fight for economic opportunity and racial justice, nothing could be more important than housing. A vigorous, hard-hitting expose, How to Kill a City reveals who holds power in our cities-and how we can get it back… (mehr)

A very timely and interesting expose of gentrification and how it affects four major cities in the US (New Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco and New York City). I believe that the author does a good job of explaining many of the reasons for which gentrification is occurring; he does not lay the blame solely at the feet of city governments who give handouts to wealthy developers, he does not blame millennials (who are apparently ruining cities, too, among all of the other things they are ruining) for moving to the city in droves (who can blame them? I grew up in a small town and wanted nothing more than to escape to a city one day). I was additionally glad that he kept his New York City ego in check and did not act as if "his city" is the center of the known universe. Definitely an important read at this moment in history. ( )
