Morningside Area Alliance records, 1947-1992

Series XIV: Urban Renewal, 1949-1977

This series is composed of pamphlets, publications, reports, and other materials having to do with urban renewal--a topic of central concern to the Alliance, especially in its early years as Morningside Heights Inc. The majority of items in the series are reports and publications on specific urban renewal projects or on general renewal programs--in New York City and elsewhere. The series also contains information collected on urban renewal programs and funding carried out by the federal government, and some information on the legislation regarding these programs.
