We like a judgy list as much as the next guy and so, in that not-quite-holiday spirit, we decided to compile and rank the most influential urban trends of 2014. From the inspiring demonstrations in cities across the U.S., to well-intentioned traffic interventions that don’t quite get the job done, to the significantly less well-intentioned antics of a certain $41 billion ride-sharing startup, we offer our take on the stuff that got cities talking in 2014.
