Imagine this street, without cars…
How would our neighborhoods change if a majority of the streetscape were not used primarily as storage for cars?
Children playing a game of pick-up soccer
Older people strolling by and sitting on stoops
Couples passing on bikes
Toddlers free to walk and fall without worry
Benches full of teenagers gossiping and giggling
Someone reading a book or a magazine
If we want our streets to be ALIVE we have to put people first and reconsider that instead of being co-opted as parking lots for rarely used cars, they could be thriving centers of city life.
