Just a reminder that we still have a lot of really great, really urban places in the rust belt. Here’s a nice feature about eminently walkable Lakewood, Ohio — an inner ring suburb of Cleveland where people prefer to get around on foot and bike.
These kinds of places are rare, in part because of the lousy zoning rules that mandate suburban sprawl we’ve adopted across the U.S. Even Lakewood is guilty of these kinds of sins. Someone told me recently that the city requires houses to have garages.
