    Is it a beautiful skyline, modern transportation systems and busy public parks? Does careful growth, transportation-sensitive development and small neighborhood definition play a more important part? Mayors from around the globe are pursuing programs to increase the use of bikes and public transit in order to reduce the pattern of suburban sprawl and car-dependence. What else makes a great city? What else will be critical to taking the growth of high-density development in a positive direction?
