David Owen explains why cities like New York are the greenest communities in the United States. People who live in urban centers consume less oil, electricity, and water, live in smaller spaces, throw away less trash, and spend far less time in automobiles than other Americans.

Owen looks at how to make cities more like the countryside, and how to make other settled places more like Manhattan.
