Halfway to Everywhere: A Portrait of America's First-Tier Suburbs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing from his experience as mayor, Bill Hudnut describes the plight of first-tier suburbs and reveals how they have been left behind as the spotlight has focused on downtown revitalization and growth in outlying areas. Learn how these areas are turning around and becoming vibrant attractive areas in which to live, work, and play.

Synopsis:

America's first-tier suburbs--those surrounding large central cities--were often left behind during the extraordinary revitalization of downtowns in the 1990s. In his new book, Hudnut paints a picture of these suburbs--from their birth through their decline to their rebirth. His portrayal of these metropolitan pivot points provides reasons for hope and strategies for rejuvenation, offering solutions for local officials, policy makers, developers, and citizens who are looking for ways to bring new life to these stressed communities.
