Lessons from Bogotá, Part III (9:58)

10:58 AM PST on March 6, 2008

LA Streetsblog is proud to present: Street Films.  This enterprising group of film makers provides original content to Streetsblog from sites around the world.  For more information on Street Films, visit the official website

Today also marks the first vist of Street Films to Los Angeles.  Over the next couple of days, I'll be joining film maker Nicholas Whitaker in shooting a series of films about transportation life in L.A. 

In the meantime, enjoy this series on the "Lessons of Bogota." Here is the third and final installment of Streetfilms' Bogotá trilogy based on the New York City Streets Renaissance team's visit with Gil Peñalosa in Colombia last September. Clarence writes:

You'll find lots of tasty video morsels including: riding some of the great ciclorutas and cycle paths, a visit to a thriving pedestrian-only street where they said it couldn't be done, a "bollard farm," mucho footage of the city's parks and public spaces and comments from the city's residents. And we couldn't resist -- just a wee bit more dance mania from the Recreovia.

If this is your first foray into Bogotá, you may want to check out these as well:
