THE CITY: LISTENING TO THE STREET
by CHRISTOPHER MOISE OAA

THE STREET

I believe that most city dwellers have something in common. We all love our city. So
I want to share something with you that I learned quite recently.
A little while ago, my wife and I were in Montreal, enjoying a curb-side wood-fired
pizza on a patio on Rue St. Denis, where we met a very wise Montréalaise. I told her
how much I admired her city - how cosmopolitan it is and how alive it is with commerce,
the arts and culture, day and night. After listening to some of her stories about local
developments, I mentioned I was an architect and asked how she came to know so
much about what was happening. She said something that I can't stop thinking about:
"Listen to the street. The street talks to you."
