New Urbanism & Urban Outfitters

Today's Changing Skyline column and a related news story are all about the New Urbanists, who are holding their annual convention in that citadel of Modernism, the PSFS building. Word is that Democratic mayoral nominee Michael Nutter is going to stop by tonight to chat with the New Urbanists. It's hard to imagine one of the planning-adverse candidates doing that.

For those of you who failed to pick up a copy of Metropolis magazine to read about Urban Outfitters new headquarters at the Navy Yard, you can now read it online here.

Oh Inga. Inga, Inga...labeling Michael Nutter as "one of the other planning-adverse candidates" does no well. To future Mayor Nutter, planning is extremely important but you're quick not to think so because of one forum you attended.

He went to this New Urbanism event. Not many men or women who still had 7 months before they were to govern a municipality would do such an act. Anywhere. Maybe you should actually sit down and throw him some questions. You'll learn a few things.

Hey if Fattah won and actually showed up, he could walk around the event telling people "he doesn't care about them".
