The New York Times today on Penn South: A positive view
The lead story in today's New York Times Arts Section "Towers of Dreams: One Ended in Nightmare" by Michael Kimmelman is very positive toward Penn South (our home), an attitude that's very unusual for Times' reporters. In this case Kimmelman is comparing the history of the late Pruitt-Igoe development in St. Louis (demolished in 1972) with the success of Penn South and trying to explain the differences which led to such different outcomes. The immediate peg for the story is a documentary, "The Pruitt-Igoe Myth."
