Talking Headways Podcast: Poor Door Von Spreckelsen

Posted By Tanya Snyder On August 4, 2014 @ 11:57 am In Equity,New York,Podcast,Urban Design,Urban Planning | 2 Comments

podcast icon logo [1]In this week’s podcast, Jeff and I take on the infamous New York City “poor [2] door [3],” designed to keep tenants of affordable units segregated from the wealthy residents that occupy the rest of the high-rise at 40 Riverside. In the process, we take on the assumptions and methods that cities use to provide housing, and by the time we’re done, we’ve blown a hole in the whole capitalist system.

Then we investigate the reasons behind the assertion that “restaurants really can determine the fate of cities and neighborhoods [4].” We determine that food is mostly a proxy for other needs people have related to where they live, but we do love a good pupusa.

And finally, we wrestle with the paradox that if we love nature, we should live in cities [5].

Argue with our take on urbanism, economic justice, and burrito justice [6] in the comments. Subscribe on iTunes [7]Stitcher [8], or our RSS feed [9].
