Driving is slowly killing us, a freeway expansion uncovers geological treasures, Londoners protest the city's poor cycling conditions, what dive bar bathrooms can tell us about our neighborhood, and a quick look at San Francisco's real underground (not BART). All in this week's urban reads.
This week in What's Ruining Our Cities: Racist mascots! Illegal apartments! Hedge fund slumlords! Basically everything you'd expect from some Sin City bargain bin fan fiction, except in Calfornia, China, and beyond.
