Intisar has a rad project and I'm glad it's getting coverage. The below isn't a comment on her work.
But isn't it important to acknowledge, even as we acknowledge that there are in fact lots and lots of black people in Portland, and that a majority of Portland kids have more melanin than the average person, that Portland is actually the whitest major metro area in the country? Because that is still true, and people still frequently refuse to believe that it is.
Seems as if the Melisandre thing is a way to get her on tv-Arya's hit list (which I don't think she is in the books; book-Arya's never heard of book-Melisandre yet). Seems to me this means that either:
1) Some character or event that the TV series has omitted, or plans to omit, is going to land book-Melisandre on book-Arya's hit list eventually, or
2) book-Melisandre is eventually going to be offed by a character or event the TV series has omitted, or plans to omit.
Not sure what or who.
Can anybody clarify whether any of these policies could actually be implemented before Adams takes off, or whether implementation (as opposed to strategy) is on the table?
I think the "only 36% drive to work" number refers to residents of all the buildings in the survey, not just the ones without on-site parking. So I think that's mostly a representation of how behavior changes when apartments are located in bike/transit/foot-friendly parts of town.
Removing parking restrictions encourages such development, at the cost of letting more of us freeload on the tax-supported street parking.
Only for trains, right? Most boardings are on buses, after all.
Also, did you mean to say "by fall 2013," or is it still spring 2013?
Gotham Gazette isn't the Gothamist! Gothamist is a fun, quality, fairly lightweight news/entertainment blog like this one. The Gazette is a nonprofit investigative/explanatory/watchdog/good-government/philanthropic thing.
