Zoned Out! Race, Displacement, and City Planning in New York City
Edited by Tom Angotti and Sylvia Morse
New York City does not comprehensively plan for the future. Instead its Department of City Planning depends on zoning, a tool to regulate and promote development. In practice, zoning and housing policy has protected segregated neighborhoods and facilitated the displacement of low-income communities of color. The city’s “affordable housing” is not truly affordable to those who need it. Zoned Out! shows how this has played out so far.
