Abstract: Urban knowledge parks are a new mechanism for the transformation of cities into knowledge cities, in which the leit motif is knowledge and information. These cities offer one of the desirable paradigms for the sustainable cities of the future. Urban knowledge parks are a subset of knowledge parks. Their distinguishing characteristics and the processes by which they come into being are briefly outlined, and reference is made to a specific case – Metrotech, in New York City.
Keywords: urban knowledge parks; knowledge cities; urban sustainability; New York City; Metrotech; sustainable cities.
