About the Book – New York Recentered: Building the Metropolis from the Shore (Historical Studies of Urban America)


New York Recentered: Building the Metropolis from the Shore (Historical Studies of Urban America)
by Kara Murphy Schlichting
Hardcover Book
Description
The history of New York City’s urban development often centers on titanic municipal figures like Robert Moses and on prominent inner Manhattan sites like Central Park. New York Recentered boldly shifts the focus to the city’s geographic edges–the coastlines and waterways–and to the small-time unelected locals who quietly shaped the modern city. Kara Murphy Schlichting details how the vernacular planning done by small businessmen and real estate operators, performed independently of large scale governmental efforts, refigured marginal locales like Flushing Meadows and the shores of Long Island Sound and the East River in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The result is a synthesis of planning history, environmental history, and urban history that recasts the story of New York as we know it.
