Streetfilms A.U.T.O. Lobbyist Visits Car-Free Times Square
She’s back! The woman you love to hate (and hate not to love) Veronica Moss, a Washington, D.C. lobbyist for – ahem!
– the Automobile User Trade Organization (A.U.T.O.) In this "chapter",
she’s getting her first gander ever at the new pedestrian-friendly
Times Square and she invited Streetfilms along to record her virgin
Naturally since she advocates for cars for a living with her every
breath, her viewpoints are bound to rankle some of those in the livable
streets camp. Here are a few splendiforous musings as she reminisced
about the "old" Times Square – where visitors "had to fight" for every
last inch of space:
- "Pedestrians are cystic acne on the teenage forehead of this city."
- "I used to feel this wonderful sense of being totally overwhelmed
and being displaced when I walked through Times Square. And that’s how
it should feel."
Of course, that’s nothing new for Ms. Moss, who first appeared on Streetfillms a few months ago in an "exclusive" interview to let us know how she feels about cyclists and pedestrians.
