Explains the few simple rules and shows the many small details which make urban life pleasant: places where people can meet, methods to "tame" cars and to make buildings good neighbors, art that infuses personality into locations and makes them into places. Many of these small details of the cityscape are so obvious as to be invisible to the casual observer.
