Introduction: The Crisis in the Urban Environment1. What Will Become of Cleveland?2. Hough and the Urban Crisis3. Downtown and the Limits of Urban Renewal4. Policy and the Polluted City5. The Burning River6. From Earth Day to EcoCityEpilogue: What Became of ClevelandNotesBibliographic EssayIndex
In the 1960s, Cleveland suffered through racial violence, spiking crime rates, and a shrinking tax base, as the city lost jobs and population. Rats infested an expanding and decaying ghetto, Lake Erie appeared to be dying, and dangerous air pollution hung over the city. Such was the urban crisis in the "Mistake on the Lake." When the Cuyahoga River caught fire in the summer of 1969, the city was at its nadir, polluted and impoverished, struggling to set a new course. The burning river became the emblem of all that was wrong with the urban environment in Cleveland and in all of industrial America.
