George Stoney on “Urban Renewal”

October 25, 2006 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

A new edit of the 1964 documentary What Do You Tear Down Next, documenting the prelude to destruction of hundreds of downtown buildings in Troy, Schenectady, and Albany. Followed by the 1954 classic, How to Live in a City, which visualizes the practical results of the philosophy of Jane Jacobs (who died earlier this year). Her book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities has guided the urban preservation movement since its publication in 1961. Part of a two-day (Oct. 26th and 27th) celebration in honor of George Stoney’s 90th birthday!

Presented with TAP, the Rensselaer County Historical Society and the Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway.
