Celebrating Five Years of Urban Omnibus

The fifth anniversary of the launch of Urban Omnibus has offered a moment to pause and reflect on the hundreds of ideas, places, individuals, and groups that have found expression on the site—from waste systems to city government; urban ecology to housing.

To mark the occasion and call out some of the many highlights, assistant editors Gabriel Silberblatt and Jonathan Tarleton look back at themes that have emerged in the publication over time and think about what those threads reveal about the needs, desires, and priorities of the city today. Links to those theme posts on Urban Omnibus are presented below, as well as photos from the 2014 Block Party, a benefit event to celebrate this significant milestone.
