The Roller Coaster of History: The Rise, Decline, and Rise Again of New York:
In 1950, New York was the capital of the world and the greatest city on earth. In 1975, it was in decline, industry and corporations were leaving, white flight was in full flower, crime was rising, and the city was technically bankrupt.  In 2010, the city was once again on top, with population gains in the hundreds of thousands, with declining crime, rising property values, and record-breaking tourism.  The talk will analyze these shifts and make predictions about the future.
