A week or so ago on WAMC, Alan Chartock spoke with Roberta Gratz, journalist, urban critic, lecturer, author, and friend of Hudson, who featured our fair city in her 2000 book Cities Back from the Edge: New Life for Downtown, coauthored with Norman Mintz, about her most recent book, We're Still Here Ya Bastards: How the People of New Orleans Rebuilt Their City. The discussion is a lot about New Orleans, understandably, and a lot about New York City, but in the course of the hour-long conversation Gratz has much to say about affordable housing and gentrification that is has relevance for the residents and policy makers of Hudson.
