    ‘The New Urban Crisis is well worth reading for the original research, clear-headed critique and the skilled analysis of solid data Florida writes in personally positioned transparent language without taking refuge in academic jargon, making the book accessible to a broad audience.' - New York Journal of Books. Crisis Cities Disaster and Redevelopment in New York and New Orleans Kevin Fox Gotham and Miriam Greenberg. Uncovers the political, economic, and cultural relationships between urbanization and crisis to provide a new perspective on how disasters and crises have influenced the development of cities.

      The fourth dimension of the New Urban Crisis is the burgeoning crisis of the suburbs, where poverty, insecurity, and crime are mounting, and .   Steve Inskeep talks to author Richard Florida — who has made a career studying cities, both culturally and economically. Florida's new book is called The New Urban Crisis.

      In the s and early s, young people in New York City radically altered the tradition of writing their initials on neighborhood walls. Influenced by the widespread use of famous names on billboards, in neon, in magazines, newspapers, and typographies from advertising and comics, city youth created a new form of expression built around elaborately designed names and initials displayed on. But if this crisis is urban, so is its solution. Cities remain the most powerful economic engines the world has ever seen. Florida argued that the only way forward is to devise a new model of urbanism that encourages innovation and wealth creation while generating good jobs, rising living standards, and a better way of life for everyone.
