Sidewalk Babble

Meandering through the urban maze


Why this blog

I’m Naomi Wittes Reichstein, and I’ve spent a lifetime fascinated by cities – how they’re built, how they work, how they shape and are shaped by human lives. I’m always observing the urban environments around me, thinking about ways to preserve what we love about them while helping them become more responsive to people’s needs. So I decided to start blogging about that. The experience of living in a variety of cities myself has fed my fascination with their contrasts.

I hold a Master in Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) degree from the School of Community and Regional Planning at the University of British Columbia.

Please feel free to contact me about the blog. I’d love to hear from you.
