Party City!

A good city is like a good party. People stay much longer than they planned to.

(Email from CEO for Cities, Chicago)

Full report out 10 Jan 2011.

A few gems:

  • A good city is like a good party. People stay much longer than they planned to.
  • The more walking and biking there is in your city, the better your city will be.
  • Mobility is about experiencing joy, not just getting from here to there.
  • Connectivity + Livability = A “Daily Needs” Neighborhood
  • How do you ask for something you’ve never seen? We covet what we see. We have to help people see new possibilities.
