Research "Beer vs Coffee: Does urbanism affect consumer habits"

New urbanists criticize Russian modernist suburbs for being a potential ghetto. In this research, I verified whether modernist neighborhoods are indeed a worse place to live or not.

Beer-on-tap shops cause a lot of controversy, and I checked based on geospatial data whether and where they are excessively abundant, and found that it correlates with how remote they are.

The same way, I checked using coffeeshops locations, if the traditional European streetscape is more suitable to be city center or generate activity, or if any modernist neighborhood can equally be a vibrant center.
