"Told through the eyes of tenants, city planners, business owners, scholars, and politicians, The Vanishing City exposes the real politic behind the alarming disappearance of New York's beloved neighborhoods, the truth about its finance-dominated economy, and the myth of 'inevitable change.' Artfully documented through interviews, hearings, demonstrations, and archival footage, the film takes a sober look at the city's 'luxury' policies and high-end development, the power role of the elite, and accusations of corruption surrounding land use and rezoning."
