Transom Show: Fake City, Real Dreams

A great story about a guy in Detroit who's hand drawing his own fake city. It's his way of solving problems of existing cities. His fake city solves transportation and city planning problems. The map-maker's name is Neil Greenbern.
Point to any intersection and Neil will seamlessly delve into the history of that block, that neighborhood, that business district, etc.

Greenbern is the subject of a radio story produced by Zak Rosen. Found this on
