Blight, 1938: it's about profitability
Atlantic Yards Report
A visit yesterday to the new exhibition at Columbia University, Robert Moses & the Modern City: Slum Clearance and the Superblock Solution, turned up this quote from Mabel Walker's 1938 book Urban Blight and Slums:
"Blight is a condition where it is not profitable to make or maintain improvements."
NoLandGrab2007: Blight is a condition where it is more profitable for some than others.
