Interesting article from Gerald Neilly over at Baltimore Brew about how to reinvent downtown to make it work in the post modern world. Basically, the "walled in" Downtown, MLK to the West, Franklin-Mulberry to the North, and the JFX to the East act as barriers to the livibility and growth potential of the downtown. If these can be readjusted or in some cases, removed, majore strides can be made.
I like the point he makes about don't just replicate suburbia in the urban area. Anyways it's a good read.
Downtown doesn’t need to recover – it’s got to reincarnate.
