A world-famous urbanist says New York is becoming a “gated suburb”

“This ‘back to the city’ movement of the creative class has a dark side,” [Richard] Florida said. “Within those urban superstars, we also have a winner-take-all system. So, we have neighborhoods that are priced through the roof and other neighborhoods and other communities that are falling behind.”

Florida argues that strong city leaders would need to fight inequality and encourage diversity to help nurture cities.
