The nation’s top live-work-play 24-hour cities are more than just vibrant urban environments for the elite. They are attracting a cross-section of population, experiencing economic growth and attracting both businesses and talented individuals. This book explores how cities such as New York, Boston, Washington, San Francisco, and Miami were financially and physically scarred by violence, and urban dysfunction — yet large scale turnarounds occurred. How? And why are other cities still stuck with the hollow downtowns and sprawling suburbs that make for a 9-to-5 configuration? The author’s cross-disciplinary research identifies the ingredients of success, and the recipe that puts them together. Author: Hugh F. Kelly, Ph.D., CRE.
