New York, NY (March 1, 2002) – Project for Public Spaces (PPS) – America’s leading public spaces’ nonprofit – have reprinted William H. Whyte’s classic, ‘The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces’.

The 1980 study of New York’s plazas started a mini-revolution in urban planning and design, laying the groundwork for a major movement to change the way public spaces are built and planned.

PPS President, Fred Kent says “Holly Whyte was both our mentor and our friend. With the publication of The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces and its companion film in 1980, the world could see that through the basic tools of observation and interviews, we can learn an immense amount about how to make our cities more livable. In doing so, Holly Whyte laid the groundwork for a major movement to change the way public spaces are built and planned. It is our pleasure to offer this important book back to the world it is helping to transform”.
