Writing in the 1970s, Peter Gzowski outlined how much the city had changed since his childhood in the 1930s: "Even within the two-mile radius where I've lived almost all my life, there is scarcely a corner I can turn and see the city I knew as a child. New buildings, new stores, new parks. Old streets closed off; new throughways slashed through the ravines. Old houses stripped and gutted and rebuilt into 'town' houses (as if someone had moved them), high-rise apartments soaring everywhere—swimming pools in the sky."
