Issue No. 28, Next American City’s largest issue yet, is dedicated to two “Comeback Cities”: New Orleans and Detroit. While we briefly look back at the disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina and the decades-long economic decline in Detroit, we focus on the future, profiling promising new developments and dedicated local activists. The issue includes in-depth feature articles on affordable housing in New Orleans, the fight to remake New Orleans’ public schools, the entrepreneurial future of Detroit’s economy and streetcar projects in both cities. Read on for coverage of PTSD after Katrina, an interview with Detroit planner Toni Griffin, and extensive roundtable discussions about vacant land reuse and open data.
