Quote of the day

“The city everyone wants to live in would be clean and safe, possess efficient public services, support a dynamic economy, provide cultural stimulation, and help heal society’s divisions of race and ethnicity and class. These are not the cities we live in…Something has gone wrong, radically wrong, in our conception of what a city itself should be.”

(Google attributes this quote to ao Richard Sennett*).

*I couldn't confirm the source. The quote is great anyway.
