    America’s great cities are coming back, albeit slowly, from the shock of the pandemic, and its divisive aftermath. But don’t expect them to fully recover their former status any time soon. Aristotle famously posited that the city “comes into being for the sake of living, but it exists for the sake of living well. ” In an era where fewer people must live in a city as a function of their employment, it’s an old lesson that cities desperately need to re-learn. Amid the rise of on-line work, along with increased violent crime discouraging people from returning to the trains and a fear of pestilence, the populations of downtowns in particular have dropped dramatically over the past two years—accelerating a longer-term trend in which large metropolitan areas have had a net loss of domestic migrants to smaller cities since 2015. As of 2022, the big cities are losing domestic migrants to more rural areas as well. As anyone walking in the largest downtowns can clearly see, the mass return to the office—the key function of traditional downtowns— has been much...
    Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who is running for re-election in June, ripped into woke politicians for undermining public safety and making the city's subway system 'worse than Third World conditions.' Villanueva, the first Democrat to be elected sheriff in LA in 138 years, called out the county Board of Supervisors, who he labeled '14 woke individuals' who are trying to defund his department in the middle of a major crime spree. Los Angeles saw a 94 percent increase in homicide in 2021 from the year before, the sheriff said. LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva called on voters to identify 'defunders' - politicians who supported the defund the police movement - and encouraged them to vote them out of office 'That's a number my Board of Supervisors still won't say,' he said at Saturday's forum with the sheriffs of San Bernadino and Riverside counties. The county has also seen a 60 percent increase in grand theft auto.  The city has been plagued a spiking crime rate and homeless population. There's also been an increase in violent robberies by 'follow-home...

    Mark Vitner doesn’t need the monthly unemployment numbers or quarterly economic reports to know the U.S. economy is coming back from the sharp pandemic-driven recession. Vitner, a senior economist at San Francisco-based Wells Fargo, has real-time data, ranging from the number of restaurant reservations to how often keycards are swiped at office buildings, all pointing to a robust economic recovery. His bank is forecasting 6.4 percent annual GDP growth nationally for 2021. But there is no shortage of challenges ahead. With mounting pressure from Austin, Seattle, Miami and other cities vying to be the next Silicon Valley, a devastating year for small businesses and a potential rental debt cliff in the future, here’s what Vitner thinks is in store for the Bay Area. This interview has been edited for length and clarity. Q: What are you looking at to determine the strength of the economic recovery in the Bay Area? A: Well in the Bay Area, particularly in San Francisco, less so in the East Bay and South Bay, in San Francisco we need the office workers to return in...
    The World Economic Forum (WEF) faced a barrage of criticism before deleting a social media video which praised coronavirus lockdowns for “quietly improving cities around the world”. In the video, the WEF said that as a result of people using less public transport and factories closing down during the lockdown, noise and air pollution fell in cities throughout the world. The video also celebrated the ability of scientists to discover earthquakes due to the low level of seismic noise on the planet as populations were locked in their homes. The WEF, which the primary body pushing Klaus Schwab’s idea of a so-called ‘Great Reset’ of the global economic order, was widely ridiculed for the post, including by former Brexit Party MEP turned political commentator Martin Daubney, who was among the first to flag the video before it was taken down. Daubney later reposted the video, further exposing the WEF to criticism. Speaking to Breitbart London, Mr Daubney said: “I’m glad they tweeted this — because it has exposed them for the out of touch crackpots that they are. The WEF...
    Sometimes Cupid shoots his shot later in life. And he seems to be particularly active in big cities, according to the American Association of Retired Persons, the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to empowering the 50-and-older crowd. The group recently published a list of great cities for older singles who are looking to start something new. The cities highlighted in AARP's list are allegedly "more conducive to dating," according to retirement experts and empircal data aggregated by the organization. 2020 RETIREES MOVED TO THESE STATES AND CITIES THE MOST, STUDY REVEALS AARP made its determination of what makes a great city for an older single person based on a "livability score" that ranges between 0 and 100, while also taking into account account each city's overall population of seniors (age 65 and older), which may play a role in a retired person's chance of finding love with a fellow single. Also considered were each city's size, location and access to the appropriate healthcare facilities. "The Livability Index can help you figure out which tradeoffs residents are making in each community. For example, some of the places that we may think...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed another Twin Cities restaurant. Burch Steak owners Isaac Becker and Nancy St. Pierre notified employees Wednesday the Lowry Hill eatery will not reopen. “The ongoing pandemic has made it impossible,” Becker’s message read. “When we opened Burch we had always envisioned it becoming a Minneapolis institution that would be around for decades. It breaks our heart to have to make this decision.” In 2015, WCCO’s Jason DeRusha called Burch “a new kind of steakhouse” and said Becker and St. Pierre build “great restaurants with great people, and the staff and customers keep coming back.” Click here to see a full list of restaurants in the Twin Cities and areas surrounding that have closed since March.   More On WCCO.com: Minnesota Couple’s Texas Getaway Turns Into Scramble To Find Food As Ice Dominates State Twin Cities Carjacking Victim Decries ‘Slap On The Wrist’ For Violent Teen Offender Downtown Mpls.

    MSNBC broke into the third night of the Republican National Convention with an instant response to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s incendiary, fear-mongering narrative that “violent mobs” are taking over the nation’s urban areas, inviting Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to weigh in after her city was specifically called out. During the Republican governor’s speech, she echoed the “law and order” narrative that President Donald Trump and his party have chosen as a driving message for his re-election effort. Similarly, she stoked fears that cities being run by Democratic elected officials have the equivalent of lawless hellholes because they have experienced unrest marked by violence and looting amid weeks of ongoing peaceful protests after the George Floyd killing. “From Seattle in Portland to Washington and New York, Democrat[ic]-run cities across this country are being overrun by violent mobs,” Noem claimed. “The violence is rampant, there is looting, chaos, destruction and murder. People that can afford to flee have fled.” Primetime host Rachel Maddow appeared just as Noem’s speech concluded and doubled back to that specific charge Noem had just made. “As we have said over the course...
    The dreadful death of George Floyd lit a fire that threatens to burn down America’s cities. Already losing population before the pandemic, our major urban centers have provided ideal kindling for conflagration with massive unemployment, closed businesses and already rising crime rates. The forms of disintegration vary. In overwhelmingly white cities like Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Minneapolis, violence has featured white radicals endorsing the extreme agenda of the neo-Marxist Black Lives Matter. In more diverse cities, such as Chicago and New York, protests have devolved into basic thuggery as law enforcement has been curtailed and large portions of the prison population have been released. The pandemic has shaken the once confident ranks of new urbanists. At a time when even The New York Times is suggesting that density and packed transit lines worsened the contagion, some still embrace theology over data, with some advocating ever greater density, more crowding in cities, and mass transit. Fortunately, people tend to be less theological about their locational choices. According to The New York Times, 420,000 people left New York City between March 1...
