I’ve been talking a lot about how people in the New York City area have embraced the “new urban style” as an idea and are moving away from the “urban” that was the focus of the 1970s.
They’re moving towards the new “post-urban” style of a more suburban/citizen-centric aesthetic.
It is now common to see people walking down streets wearing the same kind of sneakers and shoes.
The new style of living is all about being “authentic,” but also making the city look a bit less like the city of the past and a bit more like the future.
The question is, can we keep the “old” style alive and still be true to the future?
