Become A New Urbanist Star in Camden, New Jersey
Spring has sprung in Chicago, so I've taken the chance to update and expand an online photo gallery of big(ger) box stores around the country that are designed in an "urban," pedestrian friendly way. Next time a big chain retailer tells you that "no, it can't be done," you can respond "yes, it can, and in fact, it has."
One of the more puzzling little themes in several recent "attacks" on New Urbanism is that the critics simultaneously embrace New Urbanists' works as their own, lovingly portraying them as examples of their own (wholly original!) planning philosophy. Joel Kotkin's idea borrowing is most obvious with his report on the "New Suburbanism" -- the examples of which include designs and projects by none other than CNU founders Peter Calthorpe and Andres Duany.
