Introducing Not-So-New Urbanism

Categories: Environment

The Congress for the New Urbanism is holding its annual conference in Denver June 10-14, complete with bus tours of our most well-known new urbanist enclaves. But how do you judge walkable, neighborhood-based developments? Is it by the diversity (or lack thereof) of their residents, the number of parks nearby, their stumbling distance to a local watering hole? Over the next few days, we'll explore and judge -- oh yes, judge -- six of these developments and find out for sure just which is the most urban of the new urban. But first, enjoy Kenny Be's take on new urbanism from this still-relevant 1996 cartoon. Click here to view a larger PDF image of the complete cartoon.
