    Historian/planner in northern California

    Hello! I am primarily a historian, but with a strong interest in the history of urban planning, transport planning, and the ways that people used to put cities together. My motto is "new urbanism is based on old urbanism," along with "The greenest building is one that's already built." I write articles and a few short books on urban history, the history of neighborhoods, streetcars, and planning and preservation issues, and have done a reasonable amount of preservation and public transit advocacy in my spare time.

    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
