Urban planning and suchlike


There’s an article in the CSR about an urban planner who says artsy, culturally focused improvements to a city don’t make it all that attractive to the middle class, who keep the place humming. For further good city reading, refer to “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” by Jane Jacobs, which is getting close to 50 years old and is still totally relevant.
