Salon's Henry Grabar announces the start of a new column covering the future of cities. Garber notes that the world is steadily urbanizing, and that this trend coincides with the historical theme that cities are incubators of innovation.
Grabar states that, for a long time, some have viewed cities in terms of vice, others in terms of virtue. His column, in turn, seems to be dedicated to covering the possibilities associated with urban life, the increasingly chosen option for human community.
Salon's Henry Grabar: The Virtues of Cities
"The United Nations estimates there will be more people living in cities in the year 2050 than there were people living on the earth in 2000."
