Congratulations to Porter Stevens and Debra Richards Harlan (via our Facebook page—Like us!) for correctly identifying our last sidewalk challenge as Shelby Street looking south from Chestnut Street in Phoenix Hill. We’ve also decided to accept Joshua Poe’s correct identification as a view of Shelby Street at Gray Street—nice work Joshua! (That’s just a couple blocks south of where these trees are being cut down for a sidewalk repair project.) Up above is this week’s puzzle. Tell us where it is in the comments below.

And now, on with the urbanism news you need to know.

  1. That’s community art piece from KFTC’s & Kertis Creative’s Smoketown GetDown in September. Wish BS would write about KFTC’s Vision Smoketown survey report: KFTC.org/visionsmoketown

  2. Oh so many topics so little time…..! I lived in Atlantic City during the referendum (1975-76) at a time when unemployment was at or above 20%, but what a treasure trove of vintage boardwalk buildings and possibilities. Needless to say I wasn’t working in my urban geography degree realm and was instead working retail and doing part time modeling for a fashion photographer on the roof of a twenties hotel with an ocean view on Gordon’s Alley, a really before its time urban retail/restaurant alley redevelopment. The urbanists then fought a concerted battle against the casinos, and lost. Historic buildings dropped like rocks , including my beloved Marlboro-Blenheim, which was imploded, marble halls and all. And nobody local got jobs other than maids and bell persons because the workforce was imported from Vegas. Lessons learned too late.

  3. “Shelby Street looking north from Chestnut Street in Phoenix Hill.”

    I believe that photo was looking south on Shelby.
