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
In this week’s podcast, Jeff and I take on the infamous New York City “poor  door ,” 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 .” 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 .
