If you like This American Life and have an interest in architecture, economic development, and community planning I recommend you pick up a copy of New American City. I came across the quarterly magazine's fourth issue when I was doing research for a project on behalf of The St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association. I was immediately drawn in by the subject matter and quality of writing.
The magazine is produced by a not-for-profit of the same name. The organization recently held a symposium in New York which is billed as the first in a series. I was surprised when a quick search did not produce much coverage of the event, it looked like a good lineup and was moderated by NBC News correspondent Tom Brokaw.
