Making walkability even better in New York

How NYC’s streets became more pedestrian-friendly

New York City generally tops the list of walkable cities in most lists, but even there they have had to address streets that have been designed for cars rather than people.  This segment from PBS Newshour discusses recent efforts to improve walkability in New York.

Our streets for so many years have been used to move cars as quickly as possible from point A to point B. And people have even forgotten that there are other uses for the streets. Whether to walk or to bike or to take the bus. It’s not anti-car. It’s really pro-choice. It’s about providing options to make it easier for people to get around.
