Like many American cities, New London was dramatically transformed through a series of redevelopment campaigns from the 1940s to the 1970s. A panel discussion at Connecticut College addresses events in New London in the broader context of midcentury urban planning in New England and across the country, the complex consequences and legacies of urban renewal, and the challenges that face planning today.
In this clip, Professor Vallye provides an introduction to urban renewal and introduces the panelists.
