From Next American City...look at what's happening at the site of the former Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex in St Louis: http://americancity.org/buzz/entry/3197/

"To experience the site is to get baptized in the benign inertia of St. Louis at the start of the 21st century. Those wild acres are so intrinsically like St. Louis that most locals avoid them at all costs. Through avoidance, Pruitt-Igoe’s forest has become the secret heart of the city. While the Gateway Arch beats the pulse of a proud city, Pruitt-Igoe murmurs its shame."
