This chapter is a voice from America. Leading metropolitan scholars recount the story of America’s urban turnaround in the most unlikely places, the cores of seriously damaged former industrial cities – the growth of innovation districts near the downtown areas, the recovery of some inner neighbourhoods, the reintroduction of public transport, and repopulation of the centre city. The American story powerfully reinforces the European one in spite of extreme levels of poverty and segregation. Our framework broadly applies to change and recovery in America’s former industrial cities.

Keywords:   turnaround, segregation, centre city, repopulation, segregation
