- "For 70 years, on 70 acres stood a Chicago public housing community known as Cabrini Green. Home to thousands, misunderstood by millions, Cabrini Green once towered over Chicago's most valuable neighborhoods. A looming reminder of inequality and poverty, Cabrini's high-rises were demolished and an African-American community cleared to make room for another social experiment: mixed-income neighborhoods. 70 acres in Chicago documents this upheaval, from the razing of the first buildings in 1995, through the mixed-income clashes, to a rally the night before the last high-rise was demolished in 2011"--Container.
