A College in the City: An Alternative. A Report from Educational Facilities Laboratories.
Creation of a college in an urban setting is considered with emphasis on its development as an integral part of the surrounding area rather than as a separate entity. Although the report is based on a particular piece of ghetto land in a particular city (Bedford-Stuyvesant section of New York City), its implications are national in scope. Physical features of the area, such as existing buildings and transportation facilities, are identified and considered with regard to the planning of a college. Suggestions are presented for implementation of a plan for construction of a college based on the concept of filling in vacant spaces in the area rather than annihilating total blocks. Maps and diagramatic sketches are included which illustrate possible placement and design of a college campus in the area studied. An annotated list of other reports from Educational Facilities Laboratories is included. (FS)
