    Where we want to live : reclaiming infrastructure for a new generation of cities

    Gravel, Ryan, 1972- author.

    "After decades of sprawl, many American city and suburban residents struggle with quality of life issues related to traffic and its accompanying pollution and time drain, divided neighborhoods, and a non-walkable life. Architect Ryan Gravel argues that this can change. Cities have the infrastructure and capability to create a healthier, more satisfying way of life by remodeling and augmenting different parts of cities to connect neighborhoods and communities. Gravel came up with a way to do just that in his hometown with the Atlanta Beltline project, a 22-mile looped path built on long-dormant intersecting rail lines, [which] connects 40 diverse Atlanta neighborhoods to city schools, shopping districts, and public parks"-- Provided by publisher.
