Reviews

"Highly recommended." -- Library Journal

"Mr. Indergaard has some useful things to say about what can be rescued from the glory days of Silicon Alley. He points out that real estate innovations during that period, particularly in the Flatiron District, could be appropriated for the rebuilding of lower Manhattan, specifically in regards to office space and the "open flow of capital." But his strongest argument is that the most important change during the period was in the culture of young people." -- The New York Sun
