This book compares many different aspects of two of the world's major cities and helps elucidate the changes occurring in today's cities. Metropolises in Europe and the USA are undergoing radical transformations. The book explores the mechanisms of urban regeneration that are changing the built environment in Berlin and New York. Three areas of each city are examined through various frameworks: community activism, gentrification, open space, governmental intervention and the idea of culture as catalyst. The cities' differences lead to many avenues of dialogue: What quality of life will be able to be sustained in the city, and for what populations? How dependent is social integration and diversity on the economical cycles of a city? What qualities make a city livable and desirable, even for multiple generations? Hopefully, the thoughts and answers these questions provoke will lead to improved lives for the denizens of the 21st century.
