Abstract

This paper focuses on the changing forms of their retail districts and evaluates the divergence in those patterns in relation to their socioeconomic context. The importance of the structure of elite classes in mediating the processes of land allocation suggests that findings of New York, as a city of competitive capitalism and Boston, as a city of controlled capitalism, might provide a useful framework for understanding the specific contexts within other urban built forms
