Go here to listen to a great podcast in which author and Manhattan Institute fellow, Kay Hymowitz discusses her book, The New Brooklyn: What It Takes to Bring a City Back, with City Journal editor, Brian Anderson. In this book, Ms. Hymowitz, focuses on the remarkable transformation of large parts of New York City's largest borough from a symbol of urban decay to a remarkably vibrant and innovative urban environment. But, as she notes, challenges remain.
Kay Hymowitz is the William E. Simon Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal. She writes extensively on childhood, family issues, poverty, and cultural change in America.
