  • Despite its bluster and threats to the United States, which the North labels a "hostile" state, Pyongyang is nowhere near being able to deliver a warhead of any kind capable of hitting an American city, although its Unha-3 rocket does have a theoretical range of 6,200 miles which could reach the U.S. mainland.

    Unlike Paris, which was a medieval city that was intensively renovated in the 19th century, Berlin was a small burg of 150,000 at the beginning of it, about one seventh the size of London. Berlin's growth took off in the mid-19th century at a pace and a time similar to New York City, both cities hitting about 2 million in time for the fin de siècle. Berlin is therefore a modern, industrial city of the same class as all the Great American Cities praised by Jane Jacobs. That is why, every time I turned a corner in one of its broad streets and avenues, I couldn't help but feel "this is what an American city would have been if Americans had known how to make cities."

  • Many American cityscapes are broad commercial districts punctured by modern spires. What makes Pittsburgh's skyline so tight is the layout. The downtown is compact because its surrounded by rivers and hills. There's no flat, expansive area upon which to build (like Cleveland, Minneapolis, Philly). You could raise wooden clapboard housees between the three rivers and Pittsburgh's skyline would still be more impressive than that ragtag assembly of boxes called Cleveland.
