    The team behind this venue prioritizes a keen attention to detail, offering top-quality services when it comes to every aspect of the Capital City book planning and execution process, from floral arrangements to full catering services with customized, gourmet menu items. Stein describes urban planners as unwitting, well-meaning pawns for real estate capital. All this, though, was merely a subject that he "stumbled across" while researching his latest fiction, described by his publishers as a "post-crash state-of-the-nation novel". Init was real estate capital. Through his lucid analysis of how these housing policies are warped by their dependence on the real estate market from which cities hope to leverage some social goodStein argues persuasively that these "affordable housing plans" are not enough to make cities affordable without further investment on behalf of the most rent-burdened tenants.

    Lanchester has a decent stab at describing what it must be like to run a corner shop, or to be Capital City book under terrorism laws, or to leave a shack in Senegal to play alongside world-famous footballers. There were tons of good ideas bandied about, and countless practical ways to reapportion space and rethink urban infrastructures. I loved my city, but I hated what it was becoming. Planners manage the levers of urban change and make crucial decisions about land use, transportation, housing, the environment and more. Lanchester, who is the son of a banker, is extremely clever, and has a great talent for understanding the ways in which the world works.

    Most of all, though, I use New York because it is Capital City book home and the place from which I see the world. It seemed like the system allowed quite a bit of planning intervention when it benefited business, including massive infrastructure projects and tax incentives for development, but it imposed strict limitations on planners who aimed to alter the balance of power. At this point, the reader starts to think that this might be it: the novel of the great asset bubble, of London's disastrous love affair with funny money. Planning today is defined by incredible dreams and stultifying realities. Though residents had warned that the building was a firetrap, public authorities allowed it to deteriorate.

A luxury suite is available for newlyweds to enjoy pre-ceremony preparations in privacy and style. There's a creeping mood of aesthetic defeatism about the whole project. The banking sections are the most enjoyable; but fiction, as Lanchester himself has pointed out, has been beggared by reality in this area, and his story isn't a patch on, say, Michael Lewis or Andrew Ross Sorkin 's non-fiction versions.

I was excited by some endeavors that New York City planners were undertaking at the time, like building public plazas and extending the bike network, but I knew these benefits were linked to larger plots: rezonings that brought luxury development; mega-projects that turned the urban fabric threadbare; and management schemes that turned public goods into private fiefdoms.

I pursued planning because I wanted to understand how the city works, and to figure out how to preserve the best parts and change the worst.
