On Smart City, we’re digging into the issue of urban crime
with our guest David Kennedy. David is a criminologist and professor at the John Jay College in New York, but his field work in troubled neighborhoods has revolutionized law enforcement, and made cities safer.

And, with the economy tanking and retail especially taking a hit,
we’ll find out how one neighborhood is working to bring small business to its main street. Yavocka Young of Main Street Anacostia is our guest.

Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.
