In 1966 the Lovin’ Spoonful recorded “Summer in the City,” a song about hot days and about finding the right girl to spend hot nights with.
But “Despite the heat it'll be alright” in our nation’s big cities, according to the contributors to the summer issue of the Forum Journal. These authors, city dwellers all, examine the role of historic preservation in the rightsizing debate, address walkability and historic urban neighborhoods, and look at museums that tell the story of urban dwellers.
The journal also features an interview with big city preservation leaders who share their thoughts about harnessing the energy and passion of new urban residents. You will also find a slide show of Detroit and iconic urban building “cards.”
It’s summer... come read about preservation in the city.
