The Suburban Strategy
This book concludes with a discussion of some of the important lessons that can be derived from the experience of Battery Park City regarding the suburban strategy that can inform development projects in the future. It suggests that Battery Park City was a success in terms of reestablishing itself after the September 11 attacks, showing how it had created a rich social community and vibrant public spaces. The community, it contends, quietly challenged the idea that providing tall buildings, new construction, or large-scale urban development was a disastrous way to construct a community. It also considers Battery Park City as a vivid example of how impressive state subsidies and other forms of support were mobilized during decades when state support for other more populist programs was being cut.
