Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Travel + Leisure annual survey on America's Best Cities

has a section on Public Transportation and Pedestrian friendliness. Here are the top 10:

1 Portland, OR
2 San Francisco
3 Chicago
4 Savannah
5 Boston
6 Washington, D.C.
7 New Orleans
8 New York City
9 Denver
10 Seattle

I wonder if this is a proxy for urban-ness/urban design, If so it might mean that people like places smaller than New York City...
