American Culture: Love of Place

Feb 5, 2015

Surveys suggest that young Americans are moving toward cities as much for community life -- and the sense of belonging -- as for work.

Do you love where you live? Do young Americans now move for a job or a sense of place? How important is location to happiness? Our guests: Sheri Parks, Midday’s American culture commentator; Katherine Loflin, a consultant whose research focuses specifically on "place making” and what drives human attachment to cities; and Melani N. Douglass, founder of the The Family Arts Museum and creator of an upcoming "love of place" pop-up event at the Spin City Laundromat in Baltimore.
