It Isn’t Just Bike Lanes And It Isn’t Just New York

Video Tuesday

Recognizing that the streets have a far greater impact than simply moving people around, New York city is in the process of one of the country’s most extensive street reclamation projects. They are extending and creating places for people to have choices in transportation and to experience the city a bit differently than it has been for the last 50 years.

The video says it all, but I need to add that this isn’t a big city phenomena-making communities more accessible and thus more comfortable, healthy and safe is a primary goal for any community.

Reclaim the streets, beginning with your own.

Thanks for the heads up JRW, Ding!Ding!

    Awesome, inspiring, and hopeful. Biggest impediment to LOCAL (T.C.) implementation: overcoming general public resistance to progressive change. Blogs like this (MWaT) contribute greatly to toward that effort. Thank you, Gary.
