geography writing

“The question, I suspect, is not whether many who moved to a city for work will head home to smaller towns and suburbs to ride this out. The question is whether they'll ever return. This pandemic could stall or reverse America's urbanization.” – Bonnie Kristian

“When the pandemic and all its related crises finally ebb and we are on the road to recovery a couple of years from now, we will look back and see that the roster of the world’s leading cities is unchanged.” – Richard Florida

Cities have always been the physical manifestation of the economic, social and environmental conditions of our world. For millennia, people have been attracted to cities as places for opportunity: jobs, culture, entertainment, etc. but most of all, the opportunity to connect with other people. The resilience of cities has been tested as of late with the physical distancing regulations of COVID-19. Without the ability to connect with others, face-to-face, as we did before the pandemic, has the role of the cities changed? What does this mean for the future of cities?
