Subtitled "How Art and Culture is Fueling Economic Growth in New York City Neighborhoods," the report documents the roles of arts and culture in growth from Harlem to Queens over the past decade, and offers recommendations on how to make arts-fueled economic development happen. The issues it raises are important for both arts and culture organizations and for cities and neighborhoods, many of which could reap great benefits from the type of arts and culture-fueled growth that some communities already have experienced.
