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.

The obscure Washington DC includes me

Caption: Richard Layman, a bike path planner, led the charge to preserve the Washington Coliseum, where the Beatles played their first stage concert in the United States. Layman's blog is "Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space."

From the CNN Travel story, "Welcome to obscure Washington, D.C."

The author of the piece, Mike Ahlers, had an awesome camera as well as a synchronized flash device.  The light in the old arena, now used as a parking garage, is not very good.  I am amazed he got such good photos.

congratulations - you were the lead photo!

"bike path planner," though, is an awfully weak descriptor. certainly doesn't come close to covering all the stuff you know and all the stuff you do.

Yeah... "bike path planner"????

And LOL on the photo composition--you look like the head auctioneer at the Pennsylvania auto auctions. You just need a baseball cap and a gavel and you'd be all set! This group even has a barrel vault on site...
