  1. This is probably county-based, so a move from Solon to Twinsburg counts as a Cleveland to Akron move
  2. One major exogenous factor that caused Toronto's growth spurt was the threat of Quebec separatism - it caused the migration of many corporate HQs from Montreal to Toronto.
  3. A podcast: Urbanist and author Alain Bertaud of NYU talks about his book Order without Design with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Bertaud explores the role of zoning and planning alongside the emergent factors that affect the growth of cities. He emphasizes the importance of cities as places for people to work and looks at how preferences and choices shape cities. Bertaud also reflects upon the differing perspectives of urban planners and economists. http://www.econtalk.org/alain-bertaud-on-cities-planning-and-order-without-design/

  7. If we can't bitch about something that we know only superficially, then what's the point of UrbanOhio?
  8. Well, if you walk past someone taking pictures of a building under construction, chances are they hang out here.
  9. I used to refer to that as the "Junk Food Store", since my regular purchase there was a six pack and a bag of chips
  10. At least three of the galleries in Little Italy now were little grocery stores when I moved there in 1979, and another was a hardware store. The laundromat is still going strong, however.
  11. Is this the same developer who was also bad-mouthing Dick Pace (in another thread)? Did he say anything nice about any of his other competitors?
