This is my first post to an audience of one, a test to be exact. The creation of this blog is intended to chronicle my thoughts on a City, NYC, but they can apply to anywhere or anyplace for that matter. The fascination lies in the evolving nature of places, their pasts sometimes completely forgotten, sometimes dredged up by the abrupt forces of change, their futures melded by socio-political activism.
This introduction is a starting point, and will hopefully turn into a broader discourse about the City as a form of self expression, where the people moving through are collectively gathered into a mass which is malleable. Their patterns of placemaking are always shifting and informing the study of Urban Morphology.
