‘Sit-able’ Cities The Next Big Thing

‘Sit-able’?

Well, attorney Chuck Wolfe thinks it’s next big thing.

I quote him:

‘The sit-able realm is a place of human universals, broader than the walking that transports us there or passes through. And the sit-able is about far more than street furniture and sidewalk dining, pop-up urbanism and Parking Day.

Rather, sit-able places are key, interdisciplinary focal points where the delight of “placemaking” and cultural traditions of “watching the world go by” merge with the sometimes conflicting domains of law and politics, economic development, public safety, gentrification and the homeless.

Frequently, the public dialogue debates who sits where, and why.’
