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.

Who says you can't raise children in multiunit buildings in the city?

From the Metropolitan Diary column in the New York Times:

I am friends with a family whose young children like to play in the small kitchen of their Manhattan apartment. The parents were able to accommodate them by relocating the contents of one lower kitchen cabinet and removing the shelf.

The mother reported to me that both girls had recently managed to squeeze inside the cabinet. From behind the partly closed door, the elder daughter announced that they were pretending to be cockroaches.
