Last week, we explored the cerebral side of cities with 7 essential books on urbanism. Today, we turn to the lighter side with Metropopular — a charming animated short film exploring city stereotypes through an imagined dialogue between anthropomorphized metropolises. From New York’s bravado to Boston’s brashness, the film nails the not-all-that-inaccurate clichés about each city’s signature disposition with delightful comedic elegance.
