Veritas et Venustas: Pleasures of the City & More Third Places

John Massengale, architect and historian, is featuring some of his favorite Third Places on his blog. Third places are social gathering spots that contribute to a neighborhood's sense of community. First places are homes and second, work. Strangely, I find I get more work done in coffee shops than I do in my office. Its either the caffeine or the social environment where distractions are pleasant.
