    A new addition to the community

    Hi there all
    My name is Gidon, I'm studying Urban Geography at Hebrew Uni in Jerusalem, ( Please don't involve politics, I am who I am and not my country).
    I am currently finishing my first degree which I hope you can help me with, I'm hoping to continue on to a Masters in Urban Geography, Urban Studies.
    I am currently writing a paper on a comparison between London and New-York (tri-states) on urban sprawl, the local plans and means at which each area is a atempting to prevent further deterioration in urban sprawl, could use the help with finding articles and books on the subject in addition to good Sites on the net.
    Anyone willing to help will be much appreciated.
    Gidon

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
