How Public Housing Transformed New York City 1935-67 ~ Part One.
Historian Joel Schwartz takes us on a guided tour of New York City before the NYC Housing Authority razed large swaths of run-down neighborhoods to build public housing projects.

Photos are from the NYC Housing Authority collection housed at the La Guardia and Wagner Archives.
