The Transformation of New Brunswick: Past, Present, and Future

James W. Hughes (Planning and Public Policy)
David Listokin (Planning and Public Policy)

The seminar will examine the historic rise, decline and revitalization of New Brunswick from its colonial origins to the present in the context of the economic and demographic changes that were taking place in New Jersey and the nation. The roles of Rutgers and Johnson & Johnson in the decision-making and planning processes that led to the city's resurgence will be detailed. The lessons (both positive and negative) for urban America will be examined, concluding with discussions of the future of the city as the third decade of the twenty-first century approaches.
