abilities you encounter throughout the city. Every day in Brooklyn, we would pass a group of adults with special needs heading to the local park – something I have never experienced in South Africa. Whether we acknowledge it or not, South Africans are segregated. Too often, our social groups and interactions are limited to a few friends, family and work colleagues, and seldom do we even think of engaging outside our relative economic circles. This is reinforced by our lack of places and opportunities to engage with one another. Even shopping centres are actively not accessible to everyone. We need to embrace our diversity, and work at democratising our spaces – both public and private. 5. Higher Density New York City has the highest population density in the United States, with more than 10,500 people per square kilometre (*NYC, 2017). Johannesburg by compa- rison, has a density of approximately 2,900 people per square kilometre (*JHB, 2017), but is sprawled out over an area nearly twice as large as New York. In these major metropolitan centres, population density becomes critical from a servicing and infrastructure point of view. As Johannesburg continues to expand, the ability of the city to lay down new services and infrastructure becomes increasingly more costly, less efficient and requires an exponential increase in supplementary resources to sustain the expanding city form. This continued expansion is not only expensive, but unsustainable and greater effor ts must be made to densify the city with an emphasis on infill housing and smarter infrastructure layouts. 6.
