MEDIA REVIEWS
"Charles Orlebeke has written a fascinating history of an extraordinarily important New York institution-the New York City Housing Partnership. Together with local housing officials, financial institutions, and neighborhood organizations, the Partnership has succeeded beyond all expectations in rebuilding communities in areas of the City that used to be national symbols of urban despair and desolation. As unlikely as it sounds, the book is a page-turner. Within the book's covers Orlebeke has masterfully captured the tremendous passions that were harnessed to transform vacant land into thriving communities." - Michael H. Schill, Director and Professor of Law and Urban Policy, New York University Law School

"In this sensitively written and richly documented history of the origins and accomplishments of the New York City Housing Partnership, Charles Orlebeke speaks to the resilience and future possibilities of cities, while making a compelling case for a more homeownership-driven national urban policy." - Michael A. Stegman, Duncan MacRae '09 and Rebecca Kyle MacRae Professor of Public Policy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and formerly Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, HUD

"The story presented by Orlebeke is an important contribution to housing and public policy analysis. The thousands of units produced by the New York Partnership stand as proof that public-private partnership can work both to produce and empower." - Phillip L. Clay, Associate Provost and Professor of Urban Studies, Department of Urban Studies and Planning, MIT

"Orlebeke's narrative deftly weaves together the high-level political maneuvering with the hope and faith of residents looking for better homes to raise their families. In his final chapter, Orlebeke sets forth a refreshing paradigm for urban policy, based upon community development and the power of public/private partnerships, truly the best platform on which to build this country's urban revitalization." - Paul S. Grogan, President and CEO, Local Initiatives Support Corporation
