[URBAN NOTE] Five city links: Montréal, New York City, Tijuana, Mexico City, Honolulu

  • CityLab notes that talk about the rent in Montréal being uniquely affordable is somewhat exaggerated.
  • CityLab notes that, in New York City, the growing numbers of electric bikes are posing a major problem for traffic planners.
  • Despite high levels of crime, tourism in Tijuana is thriving, VICE reports.
  • CityLab has a nice photo essay looking at a “market on wheels” in Mexico City.
  • Honolulu and wider Oahu are trying to regulate the construction of “monster homes” on the island, houses that occupy much too much of their lots and might not be a good response to the island’s housing crisis. CityLab reports.
