Contrasts in Agglomeration: New York and Pittsburgh

Offblog, Chris Briem suggested that I look at an old but classic study of regional economics by former Pitt faculty member Benjamin Chinitz, titled Contrasts in Agglomeration: New York and Pittsburgh. The piece was published in 1961, but much of what it has to say about the Pittsburgh of that era could be repeated today, with little change. I can't recommend it highly enough.
