Course Description

The essays collected in your anthology are focused on New York City and urban issues. Reflecting on your own urban experiences alongside these essays will help you become an active participant in discussions about communities, public space, urban art forms, education, homelessness, crime, gentrification, the environment, and other topics of debate. Thinking critically about cities will also help you learn to use writing as a technology for managing competing ideas and clarifying and defending your own.
