Dense, Progressive Cities = TROUBLE

Why is it that self-styled “progressive” cities need more help (and money) to deal with their urban problems?

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development has announced it will spend $122 million in just five cities with “poor, violence-prone neighborhoods.”  The cities are Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, and Chicago – all of which have population densities that Smart Growthers say we should desire.  They say high density equals vibrant urbanism.  The facts suggest otherwise.
