    Great and unfortunate point: "In part because neo-liberalism hasn't only changed cities – it's changed city dwellers and their expectations."

    "At the same time, those who can afford to live in a city now expect a personalized, "just for you" urban lifestyle. For-profit companies chase these urbanites with upscale housing and creative marketing campaigns, transforming blighted and blue-collar neighborhoods into "livable" urban nooks."

    However- the more and more I see this upscale housing, the more I see downfall. Not everyone can afford this- and they're expanding these types of buildings too frequently. It's insane how much of these spaces are vacant. It's time to rethink them- and use them as community hubs.
