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.

Franz Bader bookstore to close

From Shelf Awareness:

Sabina Yanul, owner of Franz Bader Books, 1911 I St., N.W., Washington, D.C., plans to close the store this fall. As Chris Kerr of Parson Weems put it, "Beloved by university presses and art book publishers and supported for a generation by Washington's Embassy Row and traveling diplomats, Sabina and her husband, Richard, were an oasis of civility and culture in the desert of D.C. politics."
