NYC Making Streets More Ped Friendly

1 Comment

Streetfilms is the video arm of the Livable Streets Network, an online community for people working to create sustainable cities through sensible urban planning, design, and transportation policy.  They recently released a video documenting New York City's flurry of streetscape design that cater to pedestrians and public spaces that are transforming the city's livability. 

It's well worth watching to see how easily the urban landscaped can accommodate people and transportation.

That's so cool!

I love to see the recycled building blocks used in urban spaces. And construction for ped- and bike-friendly improvements is such a great economic move right now.
