Boston's "changeful Times": Origins of Preservation & Planning in America

Front Cover
JHU Press, 2001 - Architecture - 337 pages
Holleran concludes that the tools invented for stopping change proved even more powerful for shaping change. New York City drew on Boston's experience to create the first comprehensive zoning ordinance which, by the end of the 1920s, had fundamentally altered the city-building process. As preservationists, environmentalists, and planners today discover common ground, Holleran concludes, they are in effect rediscovering the shared origins of their-separate movements. A history of preservation, real estate development, city planning, and Boston's urban development, Boston's "Changeful Times" will appeal to readers curious to learn more about how and why America's cities came to look the way they do.
