The Town Shrink
In an article, The Town Shrink, in the New York Times Magazine on June 23, 2015 by Robert Sullivan he makes a point of how important arterial connections are within a city like New York. He highlights work by "Mindy Thompson Fullilove, a research psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute [and how she has] spent the past 30 years investigating how broken connections between various parts of cities harm public health and, more recently, [is] exploring ways to reconnect them." The article goes on to point out the plight and resurrection of the High Bridge as an important artery for a vibrant city to continue to thrive.
Another important article has appeared on July 1, 2015 in HyperAllergic entitled "NYC’s Oldest Surviving Bridge Reopens After Four Decades of Decay."
There was also a nice article in Mental Floss worth reading here.
