New York Gives Us a Broad Vision of Change
The word "change" gets thrown around a lot these days, yet a lot of people still have trouble picturing what "change" would look like when it comes to transportation. Change is about more than increasing the number of buses and painting sharrows; it’s a vision of reclaiming streets for people instead of cars.
Today, the New York City Department of Transportation shows us what change looks like with its new vision for a car-free Broadway. For details, read Aaron Naperstek’s post at NYC Streetsblog. But since a picture is worth a thousand words, you can see what change looks like in a couple of pictures below.
