The Time is Right for Reinventing Cities

Now is the time to reinvent American cities, Nicolai Ouroussoff writes in The New York Times.

We have a president that has made sustainability a priority. We have billions flowing to urban centers in infrastructure. A major transportation reauthorization bill is on the horizon.

For too long, cities have been victim to tax policies that favored sprawl over density and to wasteful transportation policies that undermined urban cores.

Ouroussoff goes on to explain how urban planners and architects are developing ways to improve New Orleans, Los Angeles, The Bronx and Buffalo.
