Very interesting book about contemporary city planning and urbanism. Ehrenhalt's thesis is that wealthy whites are moving back to city centers and are slowly transforming cities and suburbs. He explores cities as diverse as New York City where condos are being built in the Financial District and Phoenix, which is trying to create a downtown from scratch. This book made me want to read more city ethnographies.
