New Urbanism

I am vacationing in the Florida panhandle and am directly seeing the horrors of the New Urbanism style of architecture. This style encompasses zero lot lines, front porches, old style architecture made to look new, green spaces rather than back yards, and garages in the back. The classic movie the Truman Show was shot on location in Seaside, a community near here.

I must say that the feeling one gets is of living on a movie set. To compound the problem, down here in Florida, there are hundreds of miles of this stuff. It is horrifying and dehumanizing. Written by Paul Dribin
