Professor Ingrid Gould Ellen looks into the impact of historical preservation on New York City neighborhoods in a new article in the spring issue of the Journal of the American Planning Association. Her research, coauthored with Georgetown University sociologist Brian J. McCabe, offers empirical evidence on changes in the racial composition and socioeconomic status of neighborhoods following the designation of an historic district.
