Grist has an interview with Planetizen's managing editor and recent Angeleno Tim Halbur. He says he's fallen in love with LA, but also that Portland and New York are the US's greenest cities, that we need to be living more densely, and that city living should involve "a little chaos and grit." Still, Halbur is intrigued by LA's strong point, sprawl--he curated The Story of Sprawl, a DVD compilation of short films from the early to mid-twentieth century that illustrate Americans' abandonment of cities, and the rise of freeways and suburbs.
