Remembering Lost Places: A Digital History of Urban Renewal

Development of an interactive website examining the history of urban renewal through the historical experience of Albany, New York.

We are applying for a Discovery Grant to support planning for a place-based, people-centered responsive website, which will explore how urban renewal transformed one mid-sized American city—Albany, NY. The literature on urban renewal has focused on major metropolitan areas. Yet smaller cities were more profoundly affected. While Albany’s redevelopment is a particularly dramatic example, this city’s experience is representative of many others and will help illuminate a neglected aspect of the nation’s urban history. The Remembering Lost Places website will be a resource for cities still coming to terms with urban renewal. For this grant, we will undertake three elements of the overall project: a design document for the subsequent prototyping phase; an interpretive framework that explores how the Albany experience can help us understand the social, political, and economic impact of urban renewal nationally; and outreach strategies to reach broader audiences.
