Big Plans for Bridgeport's Steel Point

A lot of old industrial cities on Long Island Sound and the Hudson River are a mess, none more so perhaps than Bridgeport, Connecticut. This proposal for the city's Steel Point waterfront sounds promising though, if the Connecticut Post is to be believed:

"We want to make something that's pedestrian-friendly, with retail at the base of every building," said Daniel Pfeffer, president of Midtown. "There will be 20-foot sidewalks where people can shop, with cafes spilling onto the sidewalks."

These two blogs, by the way, generally do a good job covering the question of how to make cities good places to live: City Comforts and Planning Liveable Communities.
