Thanks BlogKC for this post about a new documentary about the history of the decline and redevelopment of downtown Kansas City. I am glad to know about it, and I am looking forward to a local airing. According to the film’s website, this is a one-hour documentary with this focus:
“The Next American Dream” is an examination of how American cities – specifically our downtowns – will change and grow in the decades ahead…. “The Next American Dream” also focuses on how the built environment has reflected (or some would say driven) the American Dream and how urban planners and downtown developers are re-adapting their strategies to meet the needs of a modern and more environmentally conscious society.
