Much popular speculation and scientific thinking hold that inner-city neighborhoods cannot be redeveloped in a manner that is congenial to a broad array of interests and people. Lower income and minority citizens are not supposed to find a permanent place in redeveloped neighborhoods, particularly when the rebuilding process is influenced strongly by corporations with a stake in the area being rehabilitated. This restudy of five neighborhoods in St. Louis suggests that government-inspired and corporately sponsored rebuilding campaigns can attract and hold people from different backgrounds, stages of life, and social classes.
