Honda Accord and the Upper West Side

Another implied relationship involving automobiles is that there is a kind of separation between cities and cars. I think that a lot of this has to do with an association of cities being made of buildings, which are immobile, and an association of cars and mobility. Cars move around in cities or they go to cities or between them, but rarely do you think of cars as being a part of a city, in the same way as street vendors, corner stores, or busy thoroughfares. But cars and buildings have been living together for many years now, and the urban environment involves both. Though the creases and curves of this current-generation Honda Accord may seem to lack design continuity with this old townhouse, it is wonderful to see them both in harmony, existing as important elements that make up the living, moving metropolis.
