The Eyesore of the Month

Architectural Abortions from the USA and Around the World
(And Sometimes Other Miscellany Infecting the Landscape)

May 2012

Kunstler's eyesore of the month May 2012     

     This street could not be more normal across America. It is Ohio River Blvd, Bellevue, PA. There are many ways of understanding the failures of urban form in the USA, but the salient condition of these places always has one overarching feature: lack of decorum. It makes us a nation of clowns dwelling in a clown habitat. There are consequences. Note: nobody wants to be here outside of a car.

     Here is an urban street in another Western culture. Note the differences.
