Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtdoy, It, THt LrttrtKIDGE HHAIO IS NEW YORK A DYING CITY? Not 011 your life, book says B.T MURRAY SCHUMACH New York Times Service NEW YORK A group of Columbia University social sci- entists, afler delving into the problems of New York City and predictions of its approaching has produced a book, bolstered with statistics and his- torical perspective, that insists the city has a bright future. Dr. Eli Ginzburg, and mem- bers of his staff at Columbia's Conservation of Human Re- sources Project, after brooding over the city's crime in the Bteets, mountainous welf are problems, deteriorating hous- ing, middle class exodus to the suburbs. loss of jobs and et h n i c and racial tensions, found even more imnortanl "countervailing" factors and concluded: "New York City is very much alive, although other cities and the suburbs have been able to snip off its valuable assets." The book, called "New York Is Very Much Alive; A Man- power does not attempt in minimize the even the dangers, of the city's problems. But it insists: "In perspective, the impres s 1 v e point is that New York is thriv- ing as an economic center and is well on the way to absorbing effectively its vastly expanded minority population which now accounts for approximately one In three. The effective accom- modation of newcomers is nev- er easy, but over several other centuries New York City has demonstrated a special capacity for effective accommodations. There is good reason to hope that the seventies will be an easier decade than the sixties." Among the highlights in I he book, to be published by Mc- Graw Kill early next year are these: employment in ths city dropped in 1970 and 1971. the rate has slowed and much of the decline was due lo the national reces s i o n. Reviewed over a decade, there has been a net gain of jobs in New York. loss of jobs has been mainly in low paying manu- facturing fields that have lim- ited futures for employees. There has been a greater gain in the city in such growing fields as computers, banking, hcr.lth and communications; growth, which has tapped the city, has slowed sub- stantially and is now not only encountering the same prob- lems of crime, welfare and eth- nic conflict but also is faced with the added problem of sprawl. despite its mous cost, has produced an im- portant social by product be- cause larger welfare allotments mean that many children will gmv up in good health: is being made in public and private manpower training and in tying education wiih work. "The long run trend for the New York economy." says the book, "is one of expansion rath- er than decline." The volume which, in sum- mary form, is to be the entire i.ssue of the city almanac, a bi- monthly of the school's center for New York City af- fairs makes the following recommendations U> speed the city's growth: among govern- ment, business, industry and community planning boards for bet'.er planning and for coping with tiny hut highly vocal groups that sometimes block projects that are important to the city's economic health and desired by the vast majority. of a well- staffed manpower agency to utilize human talents and to co- ordinate private and govern- ment in this field; and deeper commit- ment by the public to prevent neighborh o o d deterioration, combat street crime and sup- port environmental work; of policy gam- bling and prostitution, estimat- ed to employ perhaps people, as means of reducing street crimes; of programs to rehabilitate drug addicts On the debit side, the book particularly notes the relation- ship between economic health and street crime. ''From the vantage of long- term said the 309- page book, "the more serious challenges that New faces are lo find the capital re- sources with which to renew its aging infra structure, particu- larly its critically impotant in- tra urban public transportation system and to control the growth of illicit and illegal oper- ations that extract a heavy toll both in economic and human terms. A metropolis in which people are afraid to venture forth in the evening is in jeo- pardy." But the book is much more optimistic in evalua ting the city's ability to hold corporate headquarters and to withstand the challenge of the suburbs and of other cities. In 1970, the book notes. 118 of the 500 largest industrial and 44 of the 250 largest non- industrial organiza t i o n s had t h e ir headquarters in New York. Since then 20 have indi- cated their intention to move. But. says the book, there is no way of knowing, how many may be planning, as did Norton Si- mon, Atlantic-Richfield Andumc Industries, to move to the city. "From a competitive point of view, says the book, "it is unlikely that New York will suffer serious losses as a result of employers opting to locate or expand elsewhere."
