"In New Haven, Logue, in the position of development coordinator, had carried out the program of Mayor Lee, but had also played a role in shaping it. As manager of Mayor Lee’s programs he enjoyed three areas of support for his work: the backing of Mayor Lee’s strong political authority, a central position in relation to all agencies in the city involved in the work of redevelopment, and special access to federal funding, which resulted from the astute grantsmanship that Mayor Lee and the New Haven team displayed.” Eleanor Brilliant, 1975, *The Urban Development Corporation*

"Although the urban renewal program has been shown to have cleared more land than it built in, nevertheless it is possible to point to cities whose appearances have been greatly changed through the use of the program. Among those with visible results are Boston, Philadelphia, and New Haven, whose centers have been physically revitalized and where deterioration of downtown areas appears to have been abated. During the renewal of these cities, Edward J. Logue, the man who has been called "Mr. Urban Renewal," was development coordinator in two, Boston and New Haven, and had long-standing relationships with planners in the other." Eleanor Brilliant, 1975, *The Urban Development Corporation*

"There are some statements that seem a little too absolute. Let me think about it, let me look them over. And give me the time to come up with a concluding remark. I have something in mind for your question. I find it easier to write than to talk. I'll give you the notes that I'll add tomorrow morning." Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1975

Gowanus, Brooklyn
'"When they talk about the men that built this country, one of the men they mean is me." Mr. Diablo owns a house and thirty-three acres of farmland on the reservation. He inherited the farmland and rents it to a French Canadian. Soon after he quit work, his wife, who had lived in North Gowanus off and off for almost twenty years but never liked it, went back to the reservation. She tried to get him to go along, but he decided to stay on awhile and rented a room in the apartment of a cousin. "I enjoy New York," he says.' Joseph Mitchell, 1949, *The Mohawks in High Steel*

Gowanus/Boerum Hill, Brooklyn "North Gowanus is an old, sleepy, shabby neighborhood that lies between the head of the Gowanus Canal and the Borough Hall shopping district. There are factories in it, and coal tipples and junk yards, but it is primarily residential, and red-brick tenements and brownstone apartment houses are most numerous. The Caughnawagas all live within ten blocks of each other [...]" *Mohawks in High Steel* (Joseph Mitchell, 1949)
