There is more to understand a city than meets the eye, especially when one considers the complexity of a sprawling metropolis built upon layer after successive layer of history. This book looks closely at the traces left over time, how a city “accumulates,” how one strata is superimposed on top of another, how one historical layer interrupts another, how the metropolis resurges, reinvents itself, rises, divides and grows.
