The social life of Small Urban Places




An element that Whyte discusses in the documentary is the first element of “sit-able space”. He discusses that people are going to sit where there are places to sit, and it argues that there are certain types of seats that invite people to sit down, while there are some that do not. William H. Whyte believes that people need choices when it comes to sitting down. These choices include, adding more benches, ledges, and grass. He also insists that it is not a good idea to put benches in isolated places because people like to be by other people.
