Lost Rondout
Lost Rondout: A Story of Urban Removal is a film by Stephen Blauweiss and Lynn Woods. This film chronicles the destruction of the downtown waterfront district in Kingston, New York, by a federally funded urban renewal project in the late 1960s. Interviews with former residents, historians and urban renewal experts bring the destroyed neighborhood back to life and illustrate the impact of urban renewal's problematic legacy which destroyed hundreds of similar working-class urban communities across America.
