Richard A. Wright, Professor of Geography at Dartmouth College, reviews The Housing Divide: How Generations of Immigrants Fare in New York City’s Housing Market. The book is about the persistence of race in the housing market. It concludes that Whites enjoy superior access to quality housing and neighborhoods, followed by Asians, Latinos, and Blacks in that order. The book reaches this conclusion through the examination of historical patterns of housing in New York City as well as shifts in the past several decades, focusing on a generational approach.
