"The Unbearable Sameness of Cities"

New York magazine's Oriana Schwindt went to all 50 states and made a sad discovery. An excerpt:

And it wasn’t just the coffee shops — bars, restaurants, even the architecture of all the new housing going up in these cities looked and felt eerily familiar. Every time I walked into one of these places, my body would give an involuntary shudder. I would read over my notes for a city I’d visited months prior and find that several of my observations could apply easily to the one I was currently in.
