Upscaling Downtown

Upscaling Downtown examines the perspectives and actions of disparate social groups who have been affected by or played a role in the nightlife of the Lower East Side, East Village, and Bowery. Using the social world of bars as windows into understanding urban development, Richard Ocejo argues that the gentrifying neighbourhoods of postindustrial cities are increasingly influence by upscale commercial projects, causing significant conflicts for the people involved.
