Cities are always changing. Pick a city anywhere in the world. Do you think it looked like that fifty years ago? Twenty? No, because like its people, cities are always changing, even if they’re much older than anyone who’s lived in them.

This Old City celebrates the city life and the fast lane. Instead of romanticizing the country, we look towards anything urban and how it reflects our American culture. You’ll find news about various cities, think pieces that will help you decide on how you live, and tips and reviews on what you can do to make your city living better.

Katherine understands that each district of New York has a different type of community, and she believes it’s the same for other cities around the world.
