In Levittown's Shadow: Poverty in America's Wealthiest Postwar Suburb
With Author Tim Keogh, Ph.D.
January 18th, 2024
Harbor Mist Restaurant, Cold Spring Harbor
12 - 2 PM
Every year, Long Island's segregated suburbs make national headlines. In 2019, Newsday won awards for exploring ongoing racial discrimination and segregation in Long Island's housing market. Just last year New York's Attorney General highlighted the racial gaps in homeownership on Long Island. What created this enduring inequality, and more importantly, why did it happen? Tim Keogh will draw excerpts from his book, In Levittown's Shadow, to explore the role of the federal government, and private real estate actors, in making Long Island's suburbs unequal—and what we can do about it.
