Pittsburgh, Truro and Lynchburg

An Ode to Industrial Dinosaurs

If you're into romance this side of economic despoliation, award-winning online journal
Triple Canopy has an incredible photo essay by Adam Davies, an ode to American cities abandoned due to the demise of their mainstay industries. Issue 6 has several other interesting articles on urban development (which I highlighted here) with the exception of "Gypsy Mansions," the derogatory tone of which undercut its sexy title and whimsical illustrations and kind of turned me off. But all else is very cool.
