🎆 Happy New Year, urbanists!
I hope you had a great holiday and your 2018 is going well so far.
Over the holidays, the New York Times published a fantastic series on the subway system, looking at why construction costs are so high and arguing that the government must pay whatever it costs to fix it because the subway is key to the city’s prosperity. I highly recommend reading it.
I’m also back to writing, so I’ve included a piece I wrote about Uber that has blown up over the weekend; and given how we’ve already looked at London and Paris quite a bit (see issues 2
), I’ve included a couple of articles about housing and cycling in Berlin from CityLab
Have a great week!
