Yeah. Well, not gonna have that so, but they always closed down funny. I, actually when I was a just starting out of Colombia. University. One of the things was this great history professor Kenneth Jackson. Professor of urban history. He would do it all night Bike tour of New York City with the incoming freshmen and one of the things we did, they would allow us to We. They allowed us to ride over the Arizona Bridge on our bikes, the one and only time you can ride over the bridge with your bike. That's cool, You know, e think that began my room. We'll talk about that. A minute began my romance. When York was always I'll never forget that we can't wait to hear. You know, we have listeners who emailed me all the time and say, you know, how did Michael begin his romance with bicycles? So I'm glad you're finally gonna reveal all no, no, it's not romance with bicycles. It's a romance with New York City, and I think many of our listeners who live here love the city the way I do. That's what I'm saying. Also in the Big Three. The vaccines are on the way, but who's going to get them first? Once again. This is going to drive this country apart. I have a feeling we're gonna be a little civil war over the vaccine and running out the big three. Well, we'll We'll talk about that. And right now, the big three.

Having to listen yesterday when I was off, you kind of passed over the big story of the day. Biden. I mean, he gets out of the bed and he breaks his foot. I mean, he's gonna be in a boot from the beginning. The presidency of Joe Biden's gonna be hobbled by a boot. By the way was common, I think was Kamila Harris, who tripped him. Joe, you know, first goes the book. First goes that ankle then goes the hip, and then he's finished. It's over with. He's gonna listen to what you listen. Stop talking. What you listen for five seconds. I mean, really, I mean, we talked about it constantly throughout yesterday's show, Joe. Set him straight, William. That was a big topic yesterday. You mentioned it. No. Mladen mentioned it. Jeffrey Lichtman, the attorney mentioned that we were talking about it all day. I think the issue for Michael was that to you doesn't really matter. Okay, Well, that's fine. And Steve Ross, it's a warning sign land. Exactly exactly. I mean, it's a metaphor for this presidency. This presidency is going to be hobbled from the beginning because the guy's gonna be in a boot. Then it'll be a hip cast sooner will be a body cast, and then it'll be just proper him up from behind, as they did when he was running for election, But she's glad you're back. Michael, I'm so glad you're back with your lunacy. Really? Good bye, Everybody nice talking to you. Michael's gonna go on for the next four hours with his nonsense, and you know it will be. I think the listeners will enjoy it. Steve Roberts are ABC news Political buddy, and I love him. He's a great guy, you know, But he's definitely you know, Mr Establishment You know, in the swamp there on guy heard him yesterday with you. And he's like, Well, of course, I believe everything that they don't was about. I have a big dog to win. Sometimes of that dog really lurches forward. I might break my neck. Well, what are we gonna do? Are you kidding me? These people would never accept anything. Republicans or Trump said he's lying without evidence. But Biden Oh he Ah, small hairline fracture because he was walking. Absolutely. That happens all the time. When you walk your dog, you sprain your ankle all the time. You you Democrats lend you just roll over for your team? It's gonna be discussed over the next four years. This Natalie for the record was there are a host on the show, who said he doubted the dog story? That was you? How would you thank you very much. Thank you very much. So don't start with your silliness, Michael, that I'm gonna accept everything they say. I mean, I want to know the true story. I don't I'm not buying the dog story, and I said it yesterday. So do you want to retract that little shot? You took me there. What do you think happened? What? Biden slipped on his Jell O. And that's how he is. I don't know. Go there. Why do you tell us? Michael? What happened? Kamila. Comma took the crow. Bart, We'll act right. How about this? If he's starting out, he hasn't even taken office and already he's lying about things.

Rising global economy alongside powerful new technologies that connected corners of the globe. In an instant, we make it possible for us to live and work virtually anywhere we wanted. It seemed all but certain that the forces that were connecting our world would flatten it, too. And continue to push people apart. Well, those forces did the opposite. They drove us closer together. Not farther apart. They brought us back to cities and urban life. The 20th century was the century of sub urbanization, the flight from cities of people in industry, commerce and jobs. Is far from downtown's is our cars and highways could take us. The American dream was then a vision of a big house and a car, followed by a bigger house, two cars and more a big plot a land you could call your own. It was life on America's next great frontier. The urban historian Kenneth Jackson called the Crabgrass frontier as a young boy growing up in New Jersey. I watched my hometown of New York decline, I saw the city erupt into riots. I saw the factory where my father worked shutter. I saw the newspaper where my mom worked. The Star Ledger ringed with barbed wire fences between 1950 in 1980. Boston lost almost 30% of its population after the Boeing bust. Seattle's unemployment reached a size 25% 1975 New York City while still arguably the world's most powerful global center of business in corporate finance. Nearly declared bankruptcy. One of my professors at Rutgers, wrote an article probiotic provocatively titled the City as Sandbox, which argued that America's cities had become holiday shells having lost their core economic functions.

A group I call the creative class. Stream back to cities in ways No one anticipated major companies. They're heading back to cities and droves. Even start up, companies are abandoning their tech driven Nerdist stands and suburban office parks for the vibrancy and hubbub. Urban centers. So far, it's fairly clear that large cities in metropolitan areas have benefited disproportionately from this urban shift. First two decades of this urban revival have been marked by winner Take all urbanism where it We're in a relatively small number of superstars, cities like New York and London and knowledge centers like San Francisco, Boston, Seattle have attracted the largest concentration of talent ideas, investments.

Price out and drive away the very diversity that power there in innovativeness and growth to begin with. As the late great Urbanist Jane Jacobs once told me when the place gets boring, even the rich people leave. It's a big mistake to write off small places. College towns in particular, have boomed, as have a host of smaller and mid sized cities, even rural areas. Size at maybe an advantage. But it's not the sole determinant of success. Smaller places that cultivate innovation and creativity of abundant natural urban amenities and connect a larger centers in the United States and the world are thriving. The reality of our time is that the world is spiky, not flat. Technology may have flattened access to ideas and information. The reality of our time is that access to opportunity has become increasingly spiky in this urban century, and this spiking us occurs across all scales. Some large places. The ones we all know and talk about are doing fine, but others they're struggling, and the same goes for small and medium sized cities in rural areas. Some thrive some coast along and many others decline after years of study have concluded that the key thing that distinguishes the thriving places Of any and all size is surprisingly simple. Successful places are intentional. They undertake efforts to leverage and build upon their own unique assets. They mobilized their anchor institutions, their own civic organizations and their people.

NYC news new evidence about new Jersey's corporate tax break program has surfaced yesterday the task force appointed by governor Phil Murphy released its second investigative report on the eleven billion dollar program it's been under scrutiny for getting huge breaks to companies that threatened to move out of state and some of those companies are connected to new Jersey's most powerful party boss George Norcross and W. N. Y. C.'s Nancy Solomon has been following this extensively she joins us now by Skype Nancy good morning good morning Richard alright I'm ready to jump in the weeds with you again right now your earlier reporting found that more than a billion dollars in tax breaks went to companies connected to either George Norcross sores brother Phil is there anything new about those Camden deals in the task force report yes and that's largely because the task force is able to subpoena the companies for internal emails something we're not able to do so one of the big issues in this whole deal has been whether any companies committed criminal fraud by threatening to move out of state to qualify for the tax break the program is meant to retain jobs by keeping businesses in New Jersey in twenty fifteen George Norcross participated in a public announcement for huge development on the Camden waterfront and he said he and his business partners didn't have applied for their two hundred forty million dollar tax break for another year okay so the Philadelphia Enquirer reported on that announcement in twenty fifteen saying that an unnamed source says Norcross was considering moving to the captain tower when the task force earlier had suggested that this was evidence that they were planning on moving to Camden all along the Norcross camp called it offensive an outrageous that the task force would base their information on an anonymous source all right so I have a feeling it turned out not to be so outrageous after all right out the task force has an email chain they chose damn feet Norcross is spokesman was the anonymous source and feet sent the CEO of Norcross is insurance company talking points in which he tells him to raise the prospect of moving to the captain tower without confirming it quote it will be difficult to walk the line that needs to be walked highlighting the development that the involvement of you and George without crossing any lines to confirm that Conor strong is likely to move its headquarters now I expect Norcross and feed argue that the email shows they were just considering it and wanted to make sure that they didn't leave the false impression that they had made up their mind so what is the been the response so far well Norcross says the task force is made up of lawyers and he says they're billing taxpayers eleven million dollars for their work he also says he's being unfairly targeted so would you say is that true it's true that there are problems all over the state but nor crossing his two brothers were involved in creating a program that they benefited from and the reason there's so much focus on Norcross is because of how much sway he holds in both South Jersey locally with local politics and with the state legislature all right so now what else is the task force found out about the tax breaks what the report focused on the economic development authority and that's the state agency that runs the program the report says there was a culture of getting to yes and I saw that quite clearly in the three thousand pages of U. D. eight emails that we obtained between the EPA and the law firm run by Phil Norcross George's brother the staff would bend over backwards to help the applicants another interesting thing is that the agency is funded by its fees so the higher the tax award the higher the fee paid by the recipient company so there is an incentive to give away the tax incentives and there was more evidence released about what are called phantom taxes and now I know you you're ready to take that here we go so Phil nor crosses law firm came up with an idea that boosts the amount of the tax break by allowing companies a candid to claim taxes that they aren't actually required to pay the report includes a minute by minute email exchange where the language gets written forwarded to former governor Chris Christie staff and then inserted in the bill that same day the extra boost in the size of the tax break made a huge difference and was given to them all the Camden awards nor Nancy sounds like we are not done talking about this issue WNYC is Nancy Solomon thank you as usual thanks Richard WNYC supporters include Charles P.

"Incomes are now sixty six o percent of whites. But average black wealth is only ten percent of whites that enormous disparity between sixty percent income ratio. And the ten percent. Wealth ratio is entirely attributable to unconstitutional and unremedied federal policy that we all of us is American citizens have an obligation to remedy I mentioned public housing. It was not originally for the poor are first projects were built as the great depression in the great depression by the new deal to provide jobs to construction workers and housing for working families with stable employment. We did have twenty five percents on employment depression, but public housing was the employed seventy five percent who could afford housing, but who lacked it because homebuilding was feeble the federal public works administration and local agencies use public housing too rigid rigidity by racial segregation already existed and to create segregation where it did not in the mid twentieth. Century many urban neighborhoods were integrated because industry and supporting services located mostly downtown close to river ports or railroad stations to receive parts ship. Final products workers of. All the necessities and both races Italian Irish Polish Jewish African American didn't have cars to walk to work. So lived in broadly, the same neighborhoods from which they could walk or take stroke, short, streetcar rides jobs. The great African American poet Langston Hughes described growing up an integrated downtown Cleveland neighborhood, where his local high school his best friend was polish and his girlfriend Jewish the public works administration. Demolished integrated housing there to build separate projects one for whites one for African Americans creating segregation there and reinforcing elsewhere in Cleveland with other segregated projects the patterns repeated nationally in my book, the color of law. I described some self satisfied smug places, not just New York, but Cambridge Berkeley and other places like that in Cambridge central square the area between Harvard MIT was integrated in the nineteen thirties about half, black and half white the public works administration. Demolished housing there to build one project for whites and one for blacks. These and other Boston projects creative segregation that otherwise would never have developed so rigidly. In the west. African Americans were were few prior to the second. Great migration of World War Two then a small suburb of Berkeley Richmond became a great Pacific Ocean shipbuilding center drilling one hundred thousand workers in that families from outside the region the government built public housing for these workers for blacks temporary and shoddy housing along the railroad tracks and for whites better housing and white residential areas with access to shipping. To shopping. I'm sorry. How public housing become the slums that we now associated with it as the FHA subsidized white suburban moves white designated public housing emptied out, but there will long waiting lists for black designated projects soon, all we're open to African Americans even the most bigger than officials couldn't justify empty projects. While others had long waiting lists. Public housing became mostly black and about the same time new highways late industry gets parts and ship products by truck, so they no longer needed to be located in the deep or the ports, and they located at the suburbs and rural areas as good industrial jobs left downtown black public housing residents became poor and their rents had to be subsidized no longer adequate with the cover apartments full rent with public housing, no longer self supporting housing agencies reduced maintenance and projects deteriorated then in a great policy misjudgment well-intentioned housing fish. Decided that the poorest applicants needs were. So enormous that middle class residents should be victim to make room for the poor housing. Authorities. Inspected departments searching, husbands who signed income made their families. Ineligible to stay thus projects concentrated the poorest families frequently single mothers in buildings that were once mixed income and healthy. Segregation that we our government imposed and reinforced underlies our most serious social problems today the achievement gap between black and white school children will flex the concentration of disadvantaged minority. Children into racially homogeneous schools where their social and economic problems overwhelm even the best. Teachers, great health disparities reflect life and more polluted neighborhoods and poorly maintained housing Lord black life expectancy and higher disease rates, for example, mass incarceration, disproportionately of young black men reflects the concentration of the most hopeless youths in isolated neighborhoods with little access to jobs and educations. I have already mentioned the enormous wealth gap between blacks and whites that locks many African Americans into rented apartments either in the private market or in public housing located on the resource neighborhoods, yet another result of segregations are dangerous political polarization the closely tracks, racial lines and threatens our very future as tomography if so many blacks and whites live so far apart that we lack in the empathy for each other's life experiences happen we ever create a common national identity. My book the color of law brings together many public policies that in violation of the fifth fourteenth. Even the thirteenth amendments created and reinforce segregation. Each of the separate policies was well known to the public to scholars and certainly to housing experts like my opponent here tonight, for example, the F H as all white suburban program was publicized by Kenneth Jackson's widely read thousand nine hundred five book, crabgrass frontier with many subsequent authors. Recounting the same story yet in two thousand and three Howard inexplicably described it in the Manhattan institute's city journal like this quote as the US economy boomed after World War Two the lower middle class working families for whom the public housing projects have been built discovered that they could afford privately built homes in America's burgeoning suburbs. And by the nineteen sixties they had completely abandoned public housing left behind with the poorest, most disorganized, non working families almost all of them. By single women. And he then went onto explain the disorganisation lack of work ethic and single motherhood is all that locked and continues to lock African Americans on the resource, gather neighborhoods. It's hard for me to understand how serious attempts to remedy racial segregation, whether public or private can proceed with such a sanitize understanding of how we got here. But I'm anxious as you are to hear how Howard proposes to reverse the disaster, which previous administrations responsible without government remedies. I think that remediation requires subsidies to African Americans comparable to the wealth bequests that the sentence of World War Two veterans received and that will enable African Americans now buy homes in suburbs or to purchase an upgrade homes and existing black communities that they otherwise would have been able to purchase fifty and sixty years ago remediation should include a mixed income public housing program with apartments, affordable to black and white families. Various means it in Cruella ban, a bland on exclusionary zoning. Aban on exclusionary zoning that keeps many suburbs. Overwhelmingly white issue include inclusionary zoning. So that gentrifying neighborhoods count don't convert from low-income black segregated places into high income white segregate places also to ensure the gentrification does not create reverse. Segregation issues include property tax freezes for existing homeowners in those neighborhoods. We should stop subsidising home on those with mortgage interest deductions if their communities failed to embrace desegregation, we should stop using tax credits and vouchers only to concentrate low income minority families in distress neighborhoods. And instead used these programs desegregation, tools, we should vastly increased funding of schools health

The big promise of our mid sized metros by Mick cornet, or we're reading from the forward by Richard Florida. A funny thing happened in the early years of the Belania a rising global economy alongside powerful new technologies. Connected. Corners of the globe. In an instant, we make a possible for us to live and work virtually anywhere. We wanted. It seemed all but certain that the forces that we're connecting our world would flatten it to and continue to push people apart. Well, those forces did the opposite. They drove us closer together not farther apart. They brought us back to cities and urban life the twentieth century was the century of sub urbanization the flight from cities of people in industry, commerce and jobs as far from downtown's as our cars and highways could take us. The American dream was then a vision of a big house in a car followed by a bigger house two cars and more a big plot of land. You could call your own. It was life on America's next. Great frontier. The urban historian Kenneth Jackson called the. Crabgrass? Frontier. As a young boy growing up in New Jersey. I watched my hometown of Newark decline. I saw the city erupted into riots. I saw the factory where my father worked shudder. I saw the newspaper where my mom worked the star ledger. Ringed with barbed wire fences between nineteen fifty and nineteen eighty Boston lost almost thirty percent of its population after the Boeing bust. Seattle's unemployment reached as high as twenty five percent in nineteen seventy five New York City while still arguably the world's most powerful global center of business and corporate finance nearly declared bankruptcy. One of my professors at Rutgers wrote an article Pravada provocatively, titled the city as sandbox which argued that America's cities had become hollow shells having lost their core economic functions to the suburbs. And now shockingly the twenty first century has been deemed the century of the city young people professionals and a growing predominance of scientists techies knowledge workers and artists designers media types, a group, I call the creative class have streamed back to cities in ways, no one anticipated major companies are heading back to cities in droves. Even startup companies are abandoning their tech driven nervous stands in suburban office parks for the vibrancy and hubbub of urban centers. So far, it's fairly clear that large cities and metropolitan areas have benefited disproportionately from this urban shift. The first two decades of this urban revival of been marked by winner-take-all urbanism. We're we're in a relatively small number of superstars cities, like New York and London knowledge centers like San. Francisco Boston, Seattle and attracted the largest concentration of talent, ideas investments and economic activity. However, the reality is that the new urban knowledge economy is not determined by size alone. In fact, population size in population growth are actually poor predictors of innovation and economic growth and as our largest urban centers have become increasingly expensive unaffordable a divided a price out and drive away. The very diversity the power there innovativeness in growth to begin with as the late. Great urban est. Jane Jacobs wants told me a place gets boring, even the rich people leave. It's a big mistake to write off small places. College towns in particular, boom, does have a host of smaller and mid sized cities even rural areas size, maybe an advantage. But it's not the sole determinant of success smaller places that, cultivate, innovation and creativity have abundant natural urban amenities and connect to larger centers in the United States and the world are thriving the reality of our. Time is that the world is spiking not flat. While technology may have flattened access to ideas and information, the reality of our time is that access to opportunity has become increasingly spiky in this urban century and this spiking this occurs across all scales. Some large places the ones we all know and talk about are doing fine. But others are struggling and the same goes for small and medium sized cities in rural areas, some thrives some coastal long and many others decline after years of study. I've concluded that the key thing that distinguishes the thriving places of any and all size is surprisingly simple successful places are intentional. They undertake efforts to leverage and build upon their own unique assets. They mobilized their anchor institutions their own civic organizations, and their people they build true public private partnerships and large or small they create a genuine quality of place that all can see and feel as I traveled to cities like Milwaukee and. Moines, and Boise and Oklahoma City. My former hometown of Pittsburgh. My wife's hometown of Detroit in countless others across America. I see the incredible progress. Many so-called flyover places have made. And now, I watch is even smaller communities like in villa El Dorado, Arkansas, the latter chronicle Denise very pages do much the same to leverage their own knowledge, assets are lake fronts and Hillside's arts communities to create their own renaissance. It can be done it is being done. It does however take money and smart policy and great local leaders, but above all it takes intentional leadership to mobilize the energy of the community to do it and the decade or so since writing the rise of the creative class. I watched mic Cornyn mobilize his community in just that way during his four terms as mayor of Oklahoma City, if you've heard of them at all it's likely from the tiny famously energized as community by putting the entire town on a diet to encourage fitness. Vitality. Long before wellness became a watchword for the new urbanization is accomplishments, go far beyond that single story. However, cornet was the longest serving in a long line of fiscally conservative Oklahoma City mayors that have understood the importance of a city investing.
