Untapped Cities is a community of over 200 contributors uncovering the best of urban life from cities around the globe.
Our writers and photographers are in the streets, unearthing quirky places, stories and events.
We’re interested in what’s unseen–whether hidden, unnoticed or lost in the past–and how it informs city life now and in the future.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.
I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.
