Urban development initiatives must match the aspirations of the middle class and the neo middle class.
Urban development in India... will be the biggest sunrise industry that any country has seen in any part of the world.
Urban design as a discipline barely exists in most American and Canadian cities. In Singapore, there are innovative transportation strategies at work.
Urban conservationists may feel entitled to be unconcerned about food production because they are not farmers. But they can't be let off so easily, for they are all farming by proxy.
Urban areas tend to attract members of the 'knowledge class' -- people who work with ideas, data, information.
Urban Outfitters -- I love it. It's almost like Forever 21, but for, like, the 24- to 25-year-old girl, getting a little bit older.
Urban Fantasy is a subgenre pretty much designed for teenagers. It's pretty twee, but I adore it. I've been trying to come up with an Urban Fantasy comic ever since I'd read the Nancy Collins 'Sonja Blue' series years ago.

Upward mobility across classes peaked in the U.S. in the late 19th century. Most of the gains of the 20th century were achieved en masse; it wasn't so much a phenomenon of great numbers of people rising from one class to the next as it was standards of living rising sharply for all classes.

Uptown living, you've got to call 911. Where I am, I am 911.
Upstate New York in the middle of October. You can't get more beautiful than that.
