Event Description

Lost Rondout: A Story of Urban Removal chronicles how a federally funded 1960s urban renewal project devastated the waterfront district of Kingston, New York, a microcosm of the urban disruption that occurred all over America. This could be the City of Reading's story. The film chronicles the area's decades-long recovery from total abandonment to the flourishing waterfront neighborhood of restaurants, antique shops, and cultural attractions it is today, even as the city still struggles with urban renewal's problematic legacy.
