Introduction

Walking to the coffeehouse
WithWilliam J. Weston

The dense, walkable, mixed-use part of town is the most famous and interesting neighborhood in most cities. The Highlands neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky, is a perfect example of this kind of neighborhood. The coffeehouse is the perfect emblem of this kind of neighborhood. We make six short walks to Highland Coffee, a real coffeehouse in the heart of the Highlands, to see just what this density looks and feels like.
