 “The tendency to think that a city can build itself out of decline is an example of the edifice error, the tendency to think that abundant new buildings leads to urban success. Successful cities typically do build, because economic vitality makes people willing to pay for space and builders are happy to accommodate. But building is the result, not the cause of success…”  -Edward Glaeser
