Vanishing New York - Jeremiah Moss

Staff Pick

 A refrain we read often in Vanishing New York is "This is not natural." After spending a decade pseudonymously chronicling the dramatic changes to the character of his beloved New York City, blogger Jeremiah Moss has written a book booming with thunderous passion and fury. A scathing critique of the massive rezoning and corporate-led gentrification that took place under Mayor Bloomberg - a process which has since been exported to cities the world over - Moss takes us on a historical and sociological tour through every street and alleyway in New York, exposing the once-radiant urban character that has been rapidly papered over, creating massive inequality in its wake. Even among the glut of recently-released books on the subject of gentrification, this is a must-read!
