Reconnecting Democracy

This is an analysis of 4th Street in Louisville, Kentucky.  An interesting divide occurs at Broadway, where to the north, there is a surplus of up-scale commercial development; to the south, development lacks pace and low property prices attract only a certain segment of population.  What’s more is that further south, you find a residential district (“Old Louisville”) which houses both upper-class as well as lower-class families.  Discovering solutions to reconnect these disparate districts is the direction of my thesis.

    Chris, could fourth street simply be missing the free public amenities that old Louisville has? Fourth Street seems to have a less inviting commercial feel. Fourth Street seems like a fabricated environment compared to historical old Louisville.

    I like your diagram here. I almost want something exciting to happen where the two circles intersect. It seems like this is where your intervention could come into play.
