Levitt & Sons would not sell homes to African Americans. Levitt did not consider himself to be a racist, considering housing and racial relations entirely separate matters. However, this did not prevent a European-American family from reselling a home to an African-American family, and Levittown&apos;s first black couple, William and Daisy Myers, bought a home in the Dogwood Hollow section in 1957. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levittown,_Pennsylvania No hanging laundry out to dry on Sunday No Fences Levittown PA Public Domain.

Chris Hadfield, who is commander of Expedition 35 on the International Space Station, published the image on social media with the caption: &quot;Berlin at night. Amazingly, I think the light bulbs still show the East/West division from orbit.&quot; Nearly a fifth of the street lights in the German capital are gas-powered, yielding a softer illumination. City authorities plan to replace these lights with electric lamps to reduce energy consumption.
Property of the Hess Estate by Isaac Hsieh CC BY NC SA In 1910, nearly 300 buildings were condemned and demolished by the city to widen the streets and construct new subway lines. David Hess battled the city to keep the Voorhis, his 5-story apartment building. He resisted eminent domain laws for years, but was ultimately forced to give up his property. By 1914, the 500-square-inch concrete triangle was all that remained of Hess&apos; property. As if his loss wasn&apos;t bad enough, the city asked him to donate the tiny portion of concrete to use as part of the public sidewalk. Out of spite, Hess refused the offer. On July 27, 1922, he had the triangle covered with mosaic tiles, displaying the statement, “Property of the Hess Estate Which Has Never Been Dedicated For Public Purposes.” Although the triangular mosaic is walked all over by pedestrians, it serves as a constant reminder that Hess was not easily conquered. Hess&apos; Triangle sits on the ground outside of a cigar shop on the corner of Christopher and 7th Avenue, just a bit larger than a generously-sized pizza slice. Village Cigars bought the triangle in 1938 for $1,000. http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/hess-triangle

Nowhere steps by Wrote CC BY NC “Thomasson” was actually coined by Japanese artist Genpei Akasegawa. Back in 1972, Akasegawa came across a lone staircase that went up and then back down but had no door at the top. But then he noticed something even stranger: the railing had recently been fixed. Gary Thomasson Was the object at hand completely and utterly useless? Was it being maintained? http://www.6sqft.com/thomassons-those-peculiar-architectural-relics-that-serve-no-purpose/
desire path by wetwebwork cc by A desire path (also known as a desire line, social trail, goat track or bootleg trail) can be a path created as a consequence of foot or bicycle traffic. The path usually represents the shortest or most easily navigated route between an origin and destination. The width of the path and its erosion are indicators of the amount of use the path receives. Desire paths emerge as shortcuts where constructed ways take a circuitous route, or have gaps, or are lacking entirely. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desire_path
In 1800, only 3% of the world's
population lived in cities, a
figure that rose to 47% by the
end of the twentieth century.
In 1950, there were 83 cities
with populations exceeding
one million; by 2007, this
number had risen to 468.
Power and Organization
The City: By Whom and for Whom?
“For a man who owns his home acquires with it a
new dignity… He begins to take pride in what is his
own, and pride in conserving and improving it for
his children. He becomes a more steadfast and
concerned citizen of his community. He becomes
more self-confident and self-reliant. The mere act
of becoming a homeowner transforms him. It gives
him roots, a sense of belonging, a true stake in his
community and well being.”
Sen. Charles Percy (1966)
Philly, a recent survey of renters conducted by the
city found unexpected levels of social engagement.
Planners were surprised by how many renters
knew their neighbors, participated in
neighborhood events and helped maintain the
physical environment through volunteer work.
The “suburban experiment,” as he calls it, has been a fiscal failure. On top of the
issues of low-density tax collection, sprawling development is more expensive to
build. Roads are wider and require more paving. Water and sewage service costs are
higher. It costs more to maintain emergency services since more fire stations and
police stations are needed per capita to keep response times down. Children need to
be bused farther distances to school.
Health and Design
“Garrick and Marshall report that cities with more compact street
networks—specifically, increased intersection density—have lower levels
of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The more
intersections, the healthier the humans.”
