The terms dual city and post-industrial city are intended to capture those economic and demographic characteristics that distinguish modern urban centers, such as New York, from cities that retain large manufacturing activities and from earlier versions of themselves. The people and businesses in New York City today are markedly different not only from those in Peoria, but from those in New York City one-quarter century ago. This chapter describes how the local public sector has responded to these socioeconomic changes.
