Notes
  • Moving beyond two often used constructs that describe recent socio-spatial changes in cities - gentrification and neoliberalism - this discussion suggests working with the aesthetic idea of authenticity to support the right to a diverse city. As an analytic construct, authenticity has several virtues: it directs attention to culture as well as political economy in the development of global urbanism; it connects to the pervasive modern search for sources of 'real' identity; and it reflects concern with changes in urban experience, as well as with physical displacement in the built environment. Reviewing the post-second world war history of US cities, as they replaced the 'urban village' with the 'corporate city', and more recent examples from New York City, I consider capital, the state, the growing power of the media and new middle-class tastes.
