*** Sidewalk Weekend ***

Sidewalk Rating: Hot
Diverse cities are such a balm for the lonely. Homogenous places can be extremely isolating, particularly if you feel like you don't belong. The way that gentrification pushes cities towards homogeneity—driving out the poor, disabled and homeless, making cities ever whiter and shinier and cleaner, turning them into refuges for the rich—is a very worrying trend. Cosmopolitanism is a great gift, and something we must strive to preserve.
