The city on the edge of forever the original teleplay that became the classic star trek episode - City Edge Developments


Most edge cities develop at or near existing or planned freeway intersections, and are especially likely to develop near major airports . They rarely include heavy industry . They often are not separate legal entities but are governed as part of surrounding counties (this is more often the case in the East than in the Midwest, South, or West). They are numerous—almost 200 in the United States, compared to 45 downtowns of comparable size [3] —and are large geographically because they are built at automobile scale.

Spatially, edge cities primarily consist of mid-rise office towers (with some skyscrapers ) surrounded by massive surface parking lots and meticulously manicured lawns, almost reminiscent of the designs of Le Corbusier . [4] Instead of a traditional street grid, their street networks are hierarchical , consisting of winding parkways (often lacking sidewalks) that feed into arterial roads or freeway ramps. However, edge cities feature job density similar to that of secondary downtowns found in places such as Newark and Pasadena ; indeed, Garreau writes that edge cities' development proves that "density is back!". [5]

For example, within Northern Virginia , Tysons is a Boomer, Reston Town Center is a Greenfield, and the Rosslyn – Ballston Corridor is an Uptown.

"The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World" is a short story by American writer Harlan Ellison , first published in his 1967 anthology Dangerous Visions . It was intended as a continuation of a story by Robert Bloch , " A Toy for Juliette ", which also appears in the anthology.

Jack the Ripper appears inexplicably in a sterile futuristic metropolis, where anyone is free to do what they want however arcane or immoral. He is brought before Juliette, a girl who is named after the Marquis de Sade 's Juliette .

Upon killing Juliette (much to the delight of a City denizen who seems to be either her father, lover or both), Jack the Ripper is returned to the London of his own time, where he commits another of his infamous killings. He is surprised to discover that there are other mental presences or personalities coexisting within his own mind, commenting on the brutality of his acts as if they were spectators at a theatrical performance or aesthetes critiquing a work of art in a museum.

But as author Kate Bird reveals in her new book City on Edge , protest culture has always been a defining part of the city’s history. Bird, who used to manage the photo collection at the Vancouver Sun and Province newspapers, documents the city’s rich protest history over the last 100 years in black-and-white and colour photographs.

The photos cycle through 150 protests — January’s Women’s March, a salmon fishers’ strike in 1900, a First Nations hereditary rights demonstration in 1974, even kids protesting rising chocolate prices in 1947. They offer a look at how protests have evolved in Vancouver since the 1900s.

Bird is also the author of Vancouver in the Seventies . We caught up with her to ask a few questions about the new book.
