Event alert for local urbanists! Benjamin Ross is appearing in Atlanta on Thursday, May 29 at Manuel’s Tavern (7pm) to talk about his book “Dead End: Suburban Sprawl and the Rebirth of American Urbanism.” You can read a long excerpt from it here.
Did you read it? Pretty cool, huh? The guy knows his stuff, particularly in regard to the politics and cultural shifts that enabled car-centric sprawl’s birth.
I sent him a couple of questions related to Metro Atlanta and he kindly replied. His responses are below.
