The Death and Life of a Great American City

This tour encompasses Boston's history from the end of World War II to the opening of the new Quincy Marketplace. The architecture serves as a point of departure for a discussion of the events leading to the “death” of the city following middle class migration to the suburbs and the subsequent “rebirth” of Boston through Urban Renewal, the return of enterprise and upper middle class gentrification.
