New Blog: The Urban Flaneur Guidebook

I have decided to start up a new blog for the exploration of urbanism in all its forms-The Urban Flaneur Guidebook (click on link above). The Urbanism Blog of Dr. Michael A. McAdams, will return to be more academic. While, the new blog will look at the urban environmnet through the eyes of a flaneur. What is a flaneur (o en Francais, flâneur)? A flaneur is one who wanders around with no apparent purpose observing her/his urban environment. It joins the rank of several urban flaneur blogs. My blog will atempt to link/review some the blogs as it relates to this new one, bring in new presectives through this broad perspective of urbanism, and cultivate/define/develop the concept of the urban flaneur. The wonderful thing is tha anybody can be an urban flaneur. You may already be an urban flaneur, but didn't know what to call yourself. Now, you can sound sophisiticated and join the ranks of this eclectic group.

In addition, the "A Farewell to Istanbul" series on this blog will be permentaly housed in this blog.

I hope that you will find this an enjoyable blog to read. I also welcome contributions and comments for this new blog. If you like the blog, please tell you friends about it
