Food 4 [Urban] Thought

Inspiration this morning comes in the form of some great quotes about city life, compliments of placemakingvideo. Check out their site.

“There is no lack of space in cities. It’s just that most of it is in the form of vacant parking lots and extra wide roads.” – Micheal Ronkin

“Public space is for living, doing business, kissing and playing. It’s value can’t be measured with economics or mathematics; it must be felt with the soul.        – Enrique Penalosa

“First life, then spaces, then buildings- the other way around never works.”  – Jan Gehl

“What is the city but the people; true the city are the people.” William Shakespeare
