Ardmore is a good example of old urbanism because, from its origins early in the 20th century, its structures and streets were built with the automobile in mind. We found a pocket of near "new urbanism" on our recent walk in Ardmore. It's hard to say exactly why or how, but the tiny development of Ashview conveyed the sense of a street in a small New England town. See how close the house fronts are to the street - very unusual for Winston-Salem.
