I’m in Asheville, North Carolina for a few days visiting my daughter who goes to school at Warren Wilson College. I’m also shooting b-roll for Downtown and exploring the city.
From a downtown perspective, Asheville feels twice the size of Springfield, yet is is half the size — even though it has a mall and sprawl y’all. The geography of western North Carolina is very different and, I suspect, led to a very different approach to urban planning. Other contexts play a role in this, too.
I’ll let you know what I discover.
