Storyboard Text

  • The best way to make Manhattan the center of wealth, and have it connected with suburbs through highways, is to kick everyone out!
  • And how do you plan to do that?
  • *Tells the head head about his plan*
  • Whispers "white flight" but we could use "Urban Renewal" so we don't get into any legal trouble *insert evil laugh here*
  • We could call it the "Cross - Bronx Expressway"
  • Where would we put the 60,000 residents while we are "Urban Renewing"?
  • We could do public housing and copy the "Tower in a Park" model, and have tall towers with 1,200 to 1,700 units each!
  • The truth is 90% of the housing destroyed for urban renewable was never replaced.
  • Whites to the suburbs and working-class minorities to the towers. We could call them "Vertical Towns"!
  • There was a loss of 600,000 factory jobs, 60-80% of youth unemployment.
  •  Slum lords cashed in by burning buildings down & collecting insurance money.
  • Heroin in streets, race-based gangs. Empty blocks of ruined buildings.
