This is a place where you can feel free to discuss things that don't specifically have to do with the urban issues we focus on here at UP. Also new members who feel they don't really have something specific to contribute can introduce themselves here, or ask questions if they don't feel like they have enough to start a new thread about.

I stumbled upon this beautifully made video about Buffalo, NY being the best planned city in America.  I must say what I saw was quite impressive and taught me things I never knew about New York's forgotten city.  Buffalo looks like a gem!

"I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change . . .

Dance in bars and restaurants,
Home with anyone who wants,
Strange he's standing there alone,
Staring eyes chill me to the bone

"Once on a high and windy hill, In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing
The Four Seasons, LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING

Hearts can be that way
Is everything the same do you ever think of me
And how we loved one another
