Gimme Shelter, by Mary Elizabeth Williams

If, like me, you can't get enough of burst-housing-bubble news, Salon is currently featuring an excerpt from Mary Elizabeth Williams's Gimme Shelter. Williams, a freelance journalist, takes her readers on a guided tour of the New York City housing market, which apparently limited middle-class families like her own (and by "middle class", I mean "anyone spending less than half a million dollars") to postage-stamp-sized apartments and/or meth labs. Check it out—it's a fun read.
