The Seattle Times: Pacific Northwest Magazine
GO BY TRAIN pleads one.
GO BY STREETCAR urges the other.
Something tells me we're not in Seattle anymore, Toto. No, we're in Portland, American headquarters of the "New Urbanism" philosophy that touts neighborhood density, walking and transit over the car. Portland is doing, almost routinely, what Seattle keeps dreaming and arguing about.
I have been traveling for a few weeks... came across this article about Portland and am now even more homesick... :-) Is always nice when someone confirms what you already knew to be true... now if we only could fund our schools properly...
