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.

Guardian photo feature: DC, 1968 riots and today

I hope to get around to writing a piece vis a vis the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.   I have been thinking about this a lot in terms of "regime change rage" in 1968 and the ongoing regime change range of the last few years as another kind of anniversary of 1968.

Anyway, I came across this feature in the Guardian, "Washington DC today, and after Martin Luther King's death – in pictures."
