Forget everything you previously believed: living in the capital doesn’t give you grey hair, polluted lungs and a wider midriff. Not, at least, according to modern metropolis experts PD Smith and Leo Hollis, who believe that cities make us happier people. Tomorrow evening (Thursday June 13) at the Bloomsbury Institute, Hollis, author of ‘Cities Are Good for You: The Genius of the Metropolis’ will be talking through how living in the city can give you that extra intellectual edge, an additional creative finesse and a faster set of legs.Whilst PD Smith, writer of ‘City: A Guidebook for the Urban Age’, will be addressing cities past, present and future, analysing the experiences of the first city dwellers and what affect living the London life will have on us in future times. Come along and arm yourself with some facts to present to all your smug country-dwelling pals.
