Times Square Update

At Streetsblog:



Interesting that all it took to transform a tourist trap that locals avoided into a prominent gathering space (and center of gravity that the crossroads of the world was meant to be), was removing the traffic.

It should be difficult to drive (and park!) in cities, particularly the downtown cores.

NYC is generally always ahead of the curve in the States. It will be interesting to see the lag time on this "fashion" trend of people first design and planning.
