This book clarifies, builds on and amends Richard Florida's comment that bohemian artists have become part of a larger creative class. It defines a new heuristic type, the artistic creative class enclave, and presents an elaborate typological analysis of the similarities and differences between artistic creative class enclaves and other types of artistic enclaves. It also discusses the benefits and limitations of artistic creative class enclaves for communities, cities, and postindustrial society
It demonstrates that Lawrenceville's artistic creative class enclave, unlike the relatively bohemian enclaves described in previous studies, and the artistic enclaves briefly described by Florida, has achieved long-term sustainability within its postindustrial urban context
Finally, it makes policy suggestions designed to help those who wish to promote sustainable artistic enclaves.
