A Short History of the City
I want to describe the past. Also, my hope is that we can have some equal exchange. The book ends actually not in any of these Asian cities, but in a Chinatown neighborhood in New York city where an Asian expatriate developer and architect has [placed] a multi-level urbanist building [of the kind] that you see all over East Asia.
This one has a fruit stand on the bottom and a restaurant above it — the type of thing you see in Tokyo or Seoul. It is sort of a perfect urban form for this most urbanized of American cities and yet New York learns it from Asia.
I see great hope in that. This period we are in right now since the reforms of the early s, Mumbai today is rediscovering many of its traditions. You have global companies flocking back to Mumbai and you have major urban development projects. Mumbai has skyscraper projects going up, it has megamalls and it has all of the satellite cities developing across the creek on the mainland of the subcontinent, but of course all linked to central Mumbai by the railroads that have defined the city really since the s when the first railroad in Asia was built in that city.
There are more South Asians in Dubai tha n there are Arabs. There is of course this famous Indian joke that the best city in India is Dubai. But there is some truth behind the humor. Dubai I chose because it is a superlative city. It is often described as the Las Vegas of the Middle East, but all the buildings of Las Vegas are just hotels whereas the buildings of Dubai are financial offices, trading ports, all manner of economically crucial activity going on there.
