Picks from the Toronto Public Library: Chapter 3

The Toronto Reference Library at 789 Yonge St. now houses the collection of the Urban Affairs Library (formerly located at Metro Hall), a specialized collection devoted to all aspects of urban planning and local government. Each week, TPL librarians Cynthia Fisher and Bessie Nellopoulos will select titles of books that can be found at the Library that complement the themes discussed in each chapter of Arrival City.

Arrival City: Chapter 3 – Arriving at the top of the pyramid

Chapter 3 places us in America, often longed for by those wanting to emigrate from other countries. Examples of “arrival cities” on both coasts introduce us to the complexities of life experienced by new immigrants to the United States.
