Skybridges

I just found the GreaterGreater Washington blog Wednesday via a post on why skybridges are a really daft idea. There’s a streetbridge over Forbes near campus, and predictably it’s awful trying to cross in that area. The Washington blog piqued my interest, since I believe that:

  • Urban planning is really important
  • It’s also fascinating
  • I know diddlyshit about it (like, I ain’t even read Jane Jacobs–though I have Le Corbusier sitting around for some dystopian fun).

Does anyone know about anything similar for the Pittsburgh area? Sadly, I suspect that there isn’t anything that focuses on urban development. Perhaps that’s just because there isn’t enough development to write about.
