Tuesday morning NIMBY wrap-up

Here's the Tuesday morning NIMBY wrap-up:

From Salon, Here's a fascinating story about a couple who tried to build affordable housing in fancy-pants Darien, CT. Lisa Prevost's book Snob Zones: Fear, Prejudice, and Real Estate is currently very high up on our reading list!

From the NY Times, here's an excellent piece whose headline could be a great subtitle for this blog:
"In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters."

From the Huffington Post, here's a piece about Detroit by Robert Reich that hits the nail on the head.

And from Atlantic Cities, here's a timely story on a TEEN CURFEW in Greensboro, NC. We discovered this while doing some research for our own essay about TEEN CURFEWS, which will appear in our forthcoming book.

Happy reading!
