“The City That Never Shouts” by Steven Higashide
What are the metrics or dimensions that govern your behavior in a city?
What are the “costs” and what are the “benefits” of living or working in a city?
How do you quantify your actions – literally or figuratively – in ecological, economic, or political terms?
For its second annual competition for evocative, non-fiction writing, the League’s Urban Omnibus is soliciting essays that reflect on the topic of cost, metrics, and measurement in urban life.
The author of one first-prize essay will receive an award of $500. Up to two second place winners will receive prizes of $250 each.
