Summary
  • Issues facing public housing in Yonkers and the people who live with the results
  • In 1987, Nick Wasicsko became the mayor of Yonkers just as the city was ordered by a Federal judge to create new public housing in previously restricted areas of the city. The story follows the judge, the young mayor, the politicians, the innovative planning consultant, the homeowners and the new tenants, and hopes of and stresses on each.--
