European Cities: result of very long histories 3Complex street patterns – prior to automobile, weird angles 3Plazas and Squares – from Greek, Roman, Medieval 3High density and compact form – wall around city or low-growth zoning 3Low skylines – many built before elevators, others required cathedral or monument to be highest structure 3Lively downtowns – center of social life, not just office work 3Neighborhood stability – Europeans moved less frequently than we do. 3Scars of War – many wars, many cities originally defensive 3Symbolism – gothic cathedrals, palaces, and castles 3Municipal Socialism – many residents live in buildings that are owned by city gov’t. Some of these are massive housing projects, others small scale apartment buildings.

Europe versus U.S. Cities: Sprawl European cities, including this hypothetical U.K. example, tend to restrict suburban development, thereby concentrating new development in and around existing concentrations. This leaves large rings of open space, so-called greenbelts. What are the social costs of sprawl?
