Title: The Human City: Urbanism for the Rest of Us

Author: Joel Kotkin

Description: The Human City: Urbanism for the Rest of Us looks at the structure of the common big city and how this format fails to meet the needs and desires of the urban population. Joel Kotkin makes the argument that for a city to truly be successful, we need to see a shift to smaller more residential neighborhoods within big city settings that can continue to accommodate people’s housing needs throughout different stages in their lives. He explores these ideals through comparing overly glamorized cities like Singapore and New York with smaller, revitalized neighborhoods to see how places built for the people have found success.
