Urban design fuels my passion for the built environment... from streetscape redesign to waterfront revitalization. Among my most exciting projects: post-Katrina recovery in New Orleans and a sustainable development underway on a "tree farm."

Travel photography is my other passion, capturing city life and urbanization in China, Korea, Japan, the Philippines & SE Asia.

Much agreed; a city without third places is a city without soul. The new "speakeasy bars" (e.g. Dutch Kills Bar in LIC) are good contenders, but it'd be great to see this taken further.

A shame so many libraries are unwelcoming. There's one in Greenpoint that looks like those mushroom characters from Mario Bros.

Thanks Brendan, that was a great read. Interesting to compare the article to what's been recently implemented there by DOT & Dutch Kills Park. I haven't heard of MPA and the trestles work, so I'll be sure to check it out.

Glad you agree on Broadway Junction. So much potential, infill, density, etc. possible there. Do you think gentrification concerns are found or unfound since there's so many vacant lots to build on?

Lets approach MPA to discuss trestle artwork at Bwy Junction!
