    If you think Portland, Oregon, or Snowmass, Colorado, are the greenest communities in the United States, think again. In his thought-provoking and controversial book 'Green Metropolis,' David Owen argues that in reality, New York, New York tops both Portland and Snowmass as the most green community in the U.S. Residents in Manhattan - the most densely populated place in North America - use public transportation the most and expend the least amount of capital greenhouse gas. Instead of mimicking the vast countryside, other communities should examine the ways that set the city apart from the flock.
