Spring 2010 Environmental Planning Lecture

Cook Douglass Lecture Hall 110

Foreclosure is devastating neighborhoods and communities across the country.  In this talk I explore what the foreclosure crisis means in New Jersey.  I show what we know about the concentration of foreclosed properties and what foreclosure means for renters, borrowers, and communities.  I then consider the possibilities that the foreclosure crisis presents for reconceptualizing neighborhood revitalization.
