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.

Hollaback! International Survey on Street Harrassment

Hollaback! is an organization focused on ending street harassment.  They have teamed up with a professor at Cornell University and have launched a survey on people's experiences with street harassment for which they want respondents.

Separately, a women-based taxi service in Greater New York City, modeled after the service in Mexico City ("Mexico launches fleet of pink cabs - driven by women, for women," New York Daily News) which was launched in 2009, is not quite ready to open.
