The New New Exodus from the Big City. @DanHenninger
Caspar van Wittel or Gaspar van Wittel (born Jasper Adriaensz van Wittel; 1652 or 1653 – September 13, 1736), known in Italian as Gaspare Vanvitelli (IPA: [ˈɡaspare vaɱviˈtɛlli]) or Gasparo degli Occhiali (IPA: [ˈɡasparo deʎʎ okˈkjaːli]), was a Dutch painter and draughtsman who had a long career in Rome. He played a pivotal role in the development of the genre of topographical painting known as veduta. He is credited with turning topography into a painterly specialism in Italian art.
Dan Henninger, WSJ, Wonder Land, in re: I think we’re on the cusp of a great population shift in the US, from city to suburbia and countryside. A huge political failure; intellectually incoherent with protests and riots. What emerged: de-fund the police, The average family in a city looks at that and leaves. Steady exodus out of urban centers as people look for more stability.
