Discussion about microneighborhoods, fueled by that New York story on Bleecker Street, continues at urban neighborhood blog Urban Paradoxes:
Is a sense of place created by the developer or does it evolve over time? If it evolves, can a developer set the evolution into motion? What does it take for a neighborhood to have a sense of place?
