Part 1 of Experiment – Please read this part and answer this question before moving to the next part.  There are 2 pictures in this post.  The picture on the left is a typical suburban shopping center.  The picture on the right is a new urbanist shopping center.  Which shopping center do you like best?

Part 2 – Now ask yourself – Do you believe that the cost of your daily needs such as groceries would increase if all development had to follow the New Urbanist method pictured? and How much more on a percentage basis are you willing to pay for your daily needs such as groceries if the New Urbanist method had to be implemented?  It would be interesting to see some posts to the answer to these questions.
