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.

A marginally better photo of the CUA urban design failure to better connect the new pedestrian walkway to the Brookland Metrorail Station

New Catholic University pedestrian walkway jogs rather than continues across McCormack Road to the Brookland Metrorail Station

This is looking east toward the station, from the walkway.  McCormack Road separates the walkway from the Metrorail station.
