Luminous, passionate, expansive, an emotional tour de force Sunset Park follows the hopes and fears of a cast of unforgettable characters brought together by the mysterious Miles Heller during the dark months of the 2008 economic collapse. An enigmatic young man employed as a trash-out worker in southern Florida obsessively photographing thousands of abandoned objects left behind by the evicted families. A group of young people squatting in an apartment in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The Hospital for Broken Things, which specializes in repairing the artifacts of a vanished world. William Wyler's 1946 classic The Best Years of Our Lives. A celebrated actress preparing to return to Broadway. An independent publisher desperately trying to save his business and his marriage.

This book tells how a group of immigrants from Finland founded the fi rst co-ops in our nation focusing on one in a group of associations that are organized around Sunset Park, a New York City public park with an outlook over the harbor that is located on the highest hill of this neighborhood from the perspective of a Swedish-American fi rst generation person accepted by the Finns. This is an inside look into how one co-op has functioned adapting with the growth of Brooklyn and New York City. While it is tempting to want to examine each of the co-ops and compare how they are similar and differ from one another, it is more important to focus on how they cooperated with each other to remain independent and are able to adapt to changes. This book is organized into chapters that focus on different aspects of co-op living and includes a Patriotic Tour at the end to help the reader understand why it is important to be all-inclusive when writing history and important also to put new residents in the very spots where history happened, even if the original spot has been changed over time.

Based on more than a decade of research, Making a Global Immigrant Neighborhood charts the evolution of Sunset Park--with a densely concentrated working-poor and racially diverse immigrant population--from the late 1960s to its current status as one of New York City's most vibrant neighborhoods. Tarry Hum shows how processes of globalization, such as shifts in low-wage labor markets and immigration patterns, shaped the neighborhood. She explains why Sunset Park's future now depends on Asian and Latino immigrant collaborations in advancing common interests in community building, civic engagement, entrepreneurialism, and sustainability planning. She shows, too, how residents' responses to urban development policies and projects and the capital represented by local institutions and banks foster community activism. Hum pays close attention to the complex social, political, and spatial dynamics that forge a community and create new models of leadership as well as coalitions. The evolution of Sunset Park so astutely depicted in this book suggests new avenues for studying urban change and community development.
