Publisher's Summary

Journey to the West End neighborhood to walk the remains of one of the most famous waves of urban renewal to hit America. This tour delves into the history of land-making in Boston and the events that led to the forced displacement of 12,000 Bostonians in the late 1950s. Former residents Bruce, Jim, Joe, Bruno, Richie, Jerry, and Marvin convey the cultural richness that was the West End, while historians, architects, and government officials struggle with the lessons learned from this urban planning disaster.
