"This is the story of one Ithaca, New York, developer's involvement from first buying and renovating small houses to gradually expanding his thinking and projects to include a recognition of the interdependence of jobs, infrastructure, retail, housing, industry, taxation, banking, and city planning. It is the story of how he, along with other local developers, transformed a quiet, economically challenged upstate New York town into one that is now recognized as among the best small cities in the country"-- Provided by publisher
