Manhattantown (Q3285828)

Summary from English Wikipedia (enwiki)

Manhattantown, now known as Park West Village or West Park Apartments, was a massive urban renewal project in Manhattan Valley, formerly Bloomingdale District, in New York City west of Central Park. It was funded by Title I of the Housing Act of 1949, which financed slum clearance under urban redevelopment initiatives. Allegations of corruption were leveled soon after the project's inception in the spring of 1949, culminating in hearings in the Senate's Banking and Currency Committee in 1954.
