Urban Omnibus is an online project of the Architectural League to create a new kind of conversation about design and New York City. They gather and present insights and projects from journalists, urban planners, designers, activists, artists, scholars and citizen.
According to their mission statement, "Urban Omnibus makes vivid the processes and possibilities shaping New York. Our goal is to increase understanding of the city we have and encourage ideas that can lead to a more inclusive, more sustainable, more beautiful city that could be."
Even though NY might be described as vibrant, rather than in decline, I believe that there's still a lot to learn. Moreover, as any big city, NY is in constant evolution and some neighborhoods need to be revitalized.
Urban Omnibus is an interesting website and reflects the engagement of members of the community in thinking (and re-designing) the city.
