NYtimes article on Urban memory

This article in the New York Times has a lot in it about the memories of tragedies in New York, which made me think oif Wraith.

It mentions things like Kitty Genovese's murder and the Triangle Shirtwaist company fire, and how they're still rememberd, or not, to this day.

One quote that seems appropriate is this: “It’s the quintessential New York question: As physical places change, what becomes of memory?” said Joshua Brown, a historian and executive director of the American Social History Project at the City University of New York Graduate Center. “Very rarely do people remember the significance of what came before.”

Anyway, the article is very interesting, especially regarding Memoriam and Legacy.
