Making good urban neighborhoods requires careful attention to the details of neighborhood design, especially new infill housing. Originally published in 1997, this booklet presents again ten fundamental guidelines for good housing design based on a synthesis of general principles of urban design and a thorough analysis of the specific context of Buffalo's Lower West Side neighborhood. The 2nd edition includes an evaluation of the application of voluntary design guidelines to the creation of new housing in the neighborhood.
