Elements to Find a City to Live in

Posted: March 29th, 2005 | No Comments »

Instead of adding up 300 datapoints about places, and coming up with a list of ‘most livable’ cities, Chris Heathcote gives two elements that he thinks reveal a lot about a city, plus a few niceties: Is there good street food? Are there gates on the public transport? I would add the number of dogs per citizen as a clear negative factor. In thriving cities, people are too socialy active and can’t afford time on taking care of slave pets. Besides, I think living in a single city is not enough for creative people. I believe in commuting between two well-connected thriving cities.
