Modern urban planning emerged at the start of the 20th century as a vital public health intervention in environmentally and socially disfigured industrial cities. A century later, faced with a new set of public healthy threats, our science of healthy cities is more sophisticated. Like the microbial ecology of the human gut, each city and even each metro line, has its own urban microbiome. Will urban microbial ecology mapping turn out to be a 21st century equivalent to John Snow’s pioneering cholera maps of late 19th century London?
