CHAPTER FIVE
Evidence for Neighborhood Revitalization: Manhattan

MARK BALDASSARE


INTRODUCTION

Much has been written about the "turnaround" in central-city neighborhoods, but systematic evidence of microlevel changes in the 1970s is rare. This paper examines revitalization in Manhattan, the inner city of the largest metropolitan area in the U.S., by using profiles developed for each of its thirty-six neighborhoods. These data were compiled by the New York City Planning Department and included 1970 census information, agency statistics, and updates on key indicators from the mid-1970s. These descriptive statistics allow us to ascertain the extent of neighborhood improvement in the inner city and, through analyses of neighborhood rankings over time, provide evidence of unique types of revitalization. The study offers new methods with which to examine the process and potential outcomes of neighborhood change.
