In My Backpack: GOOD Magazine’s ‘Cities’ Issue

A quote plucked from my current reading material.

Los Angeles // Value Inn

When talking about cities like Cleveland or Pittsburgh, city planners and architects refer to the dead or under-used areas as “broken teeth.” Well, Los Angeles might as well be a washed-up prizefighter, because there are a lot of gaping holes between those pearly whites.”

—Tim Halbur, “The Future is Bright in Los Angeles,” GOOD magazine, Spring 2011

Well, here we are. And it’s even, unintentionally, alliterative. California. Chicago. Cincinnati. Covington, KY. And Columbus, OH.
