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.

Small bike counter, Royal College Street, Camden Town, London

The advantage of taking wrong turns is that you get the opportunity to see stuff that you wouldn't have seen otherwise.  While walking to Camden High Street from London Euston train station, I took a wrong turn, walking down Royal College Street, which is somewhat parallel to Camden High Street.

It is the location of a main cycletrack and has a pretty simple, but effective, bike counter, displaying daily and year-to-date counts.

It's got to be a lot cheaper than the big, but very prominent bike counters like this one at the new Wharf District.  That being said, there's a place for both types.

(Donations are still being accepted.  Thank you.)
