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.

Corn in the city

Given the frame construction, you might think this house is in the suburbs.  It's actually down the street--a block or two--from the Petworth Metro Station, on New Hampshire Avenue NW.

It's a good utilization of "marginal' land, a small front yard, and a kind of public art.

It's more than knee-high before the Fourth of July too.
