This week’s quote is from James Howard Kunstler’s book, The Geography of Nowhere. Kunstler is a critic of suburban sprawl and a supporter of Smart Growth and New Urbanism.
“Community is not something you have, like pizza. Nor is it something you can buy. It’s a living organism based on a web of interdependencies – which is to say, a local economy. It expresses itself physically as connectedness, as buildings actively relating to each other, and to whatever public space exists, be it the street, or the courthouse or the village green.”
