Great NY Times Article on Walking

This week’s New York Times Sunday magazine is devoted to the subject of walking in New York City. While most of the articles are personal narratives or think pieces, “How Do We Protect New York City’s Pedestrians?” is the best thing I’ve ever read on ped-auto conflict and how a shift in engineering philosophy can make a huge difference. The article also does a terrific job of describing the history of how we got into the situation we’re in today.
