> Any city planned and developed before cars...

Before cars and before skyscrapers! The model of town you're talking about doesn't scale well.

It scales a lot better than suburbs as far as the eye can see.

Seoul and Tokyo scale pretty well.

Do you mean Seoul and Tokyo are meant for pedestrians? Or that they have have the same type (please note: type, not quantity) of charm of Florence or Prague?

Tokyo is one of the best cities in the world for pedestrians, maybe THE best.
