This on-the-ground study of one square mile in Detroit was written in collaboration with neighborhood residents, many of whom were involved with the famous Detroit Geographical Expedition and Institute. Fitzgerald, at its core, is dedicated to understanding global phenomena through the intensive study of a small, local place.
Beginning with an 1816 encounter between the Ojibwa population and the neighborhood’s first surveyor, William Bunge examines the racialized imposition of local landscapes over the course of European American settlement. Historical events are firmly situated in space―a task Bunge accomplishes through liberal use of maps and frequent references to recognizable twentieth-century landmarks.
More than a work of historical geography, Fitzgerald is a political intervention. By 1967 the neighborhood was mostly African American; Black Power was ascendant; and Detroit would experience a major riot. Immersed in the daily life of the area, Bunge encouraged residents to tell their stories and to think about local politics in spatial terms. His desire to undertake a different sort of geography led him to create a work that was nothing like a typical work of social science. The jumble of text, maps, and images makes it a particularly urgent book―a major theoretical contribution to urban geography that is also a startling evocation of street-level Detroit during a turbulent era.

For many of us, upon learning of the attacks in Paris, one answer was sadness. But by Saturday, as tea-light candles and tricolored trinkets formed makeshift memorials on city streets from Singapore to Paris itself, there were signs of the commemorative task ahead: transforming sadness into considered grief. On certain blocks of lower Manhattan, this task figures regularly in the lives of local workers, who have become perpetual tourists of the 9/11 memorial. Often, in the afternoons, I get up from my desk at 1 World Trade Center, which opened a year ago this month, and walk out a revolving door to the memorial. Foot traffic is thin on the plaza, and it can feel pleasantly private, like a little-known park. Up above, where the view from a midtown office would be of another office, the feeling is different. The vacancy appears unintentional and unguarded, as though the destruction had recently occurred and our building, one of an original triad, had survived. “The same hatred struck again,” New York’s French consul-general, Bertrand Lortholary, said on Monday, to a crowd assembled on the grounds of the 9/11 memorial , where bouquets and miniature French flags had been set down by the pools. Eventually, such tragedies become as easy to diminish as they are to dramatize: a man in a jogging suit looks abashed as he smokes under one of the memorial’s oak trees. The tourist can leave in confusion, but the perpetual tourist cannot. On a recent Thursday afternoon, I made for Brookfield Place, a luxury mall across the West Side Highway, to see how other workers were faring. “I try not to walk through the memorial, but it’s very convenient for me,” a twenty-two-year-old clerk said at Satya Jewelry. “I feel like there’s something odd in the same way that taking pictures of the memorial is odd. I think that having an Hermès next door is an odd thing. ” At Tory Burch, the purveyor of ballet flats in many colors, the shy saleswoman told me that she would visit the memorial only “when the time is right,” but noted, “Tory is very into feng-shui, so I’m pretty sure that the memorial had something... “The memorial doesn’t really affect me,.
