Overlooking Old Québec. Photo: Renault Philippe/hemis.fr/Getty Images It’s commonly understood that the best way to explore a new place is to go straight to the locals. Each week in the Urbanist, we take that wisdom one step further by seeking out not just locals but local experts — those who are especially well versed in their cities’ newest and most noteworthy scenes — to give us insider recommendations. This week, we asked architect Pierre Thibault, of Canadian studio Atelier Pierre Thibault, for his picks in Québec’s capital city. “History and nature are very important to Québec. It’s one of the oldest European cities in North America, colonized by the French, then the English more than four hundred years ago. It has an incredible view of the Saint Lawrence River, where the Port de Québec acted as the ‘door to North America’ in the 19th century, and the mountains. There are so many remnants of its colonial … [Read more...] about An Architect’s Guide to Québec City

Epstein in his townhouse in 2015. Photo: Christopher Anderson for New York Magazine Perhaps, at long last, a serial rapist and pedophile may be brought to justice, more than a dozen years after he was first charged with crimes that have brutalized countless girls and women. But what won’t change is this: the cesspool of elites, many of them in New York, who allowed Jeffrey Epstein to flourish with impunity. For decades, important, influential, “serious” people attended Epstein’s dinner parties, rode his private jet, and furthered the fiction that he was some kind of genius hedge-fund billionaire.
