The Rebirth of Urbanism

Interesting short news piece on CNN about the sudden resurgence of the ‘New Urbanism’ movement.   Amazing how rising gas costs will make American think again about the radical idea of livable, walkable cities & towns.

For what it’s worth, the New Urbanism movement was one of James Howard Kunstler’s main writing topics prior to his jumping on the peak oil bandwagon.  He cranked out three non-fiction books dealing with the subject in the 1990’s.
