Want to help MIT evaluate people’s attitudes about cities?

MIT's Media Lab has developed a website called Place Pulse that evaluates your perception of cities and neighborhoods. You choose which of two images from Google Street View looks more unique, or more upper-class, or safer, and Place Pulse collates everyone's votes in a way that will hopefully be useful for urban planning. And for two more days, you can contribute your snap judgments to the experiment. Choose a question at the top, then pick which image best suits the description (some are really hard!). Or check back on August 14 to see what places look safest, richest, and most unique, and whether they have anything in common.
