Yes, Manhattan is known for its lack of sophistication and culture! ;)

And in many ways its lifestyle leaves much to be desired. I personally get claustrophobic in Manhattan due to the crush of people and the tall buildings; I barely last a day there. It would be sad if increased economic activity forced more people into the barbaric lifestyle of the city.

I do telecommute almost entirely, but because I have to get on an airplane six or eight times a year, my carbon footprint is well above average. There is no winning.

The number of adults in the US generally continues to grow every year.

I suspect that per capita driving is not going up at all and that all we are seeing is a growing population.
