I will miss my Borders books and my Borders Bucks for that matter (yeah I am a reader). This is a fascinating piece I heard as I woke up. I woke up much more quickly that I normally do just so I could catch this. As much as I knew about this subject I had no idea that urban versions of the bigger grocery/general stores were actually more profitable. It is always good to have information about big box redevelopment potential in your back pocket and I think I will be picking up a copy of The Option of Urbanism.
I am a someone who walks as much as I can and thinks public transportation should be able to get me anywhere else I want to go. It is nice to know that I am not as much of an oddity as I sometimes feel. I remember when I “had” to get a car (and a license to drive the thing of course). I felt so much less free.
And I got so much less fit. I am an urbanite to the core and proud of it.
