ny times article - reinventing american cities

So it's a few weeks old, but I just read this very intriguing article in the New York Times about reinventing American cities. There are some great insights in the article and I for one hope we can find a way to implement some of them, especially here in Los Angeles, a city with no true center, less soul and basically separate communities strung along large slabs of concrete. Don't get me wrong, I am all for identity and community. Its a monumental task in some ways to make broad change, but it is sorely needed. It is time we realize we must live together, not separate. 

For my two cents, bring on the high speed rail. And more greenspace!
