Rethinking the Hazardous Waterfront

I recently interviewed Diane Sicotte, an environmental sociologist at Drexel University, about her upcoming research on environmental hazards in Philadelphia. Sicotte has written on the topic before, publishing an article in which she mapped the locations of the many different known toxic hazards in the city. Her research is an interesting approach to thinking about pollution in urban areas, asking a fairly simple question: where is pollution concentrated in Philadelphia and why? Here is the article I wrote for Hidden City Daily on Sicotte’s research and what it means for planning towards reducing environmental burden in the city.
