Doug Muzzio asks, is the state of the city a tale of two cities or two tales of the city? James Parrott, chief economist and deputy director of the Fiscal Policy Institute says - yes - a tale of two cities; Nicole Gelinas, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute suggests that a better description may be a tale of three cities: the poor, the wealthy, and the middle class- the group that we need to worry about most.
