In response to an article by the NYT about the history of pedestrian hazards in cities through the decades:

The Pedestrian Loses the Way

I wrote this comment:

Quote:
I think a city of the future is more to be like the World's Fair or Disneyland...two places where a person could, or can, stroll, walk...carfree, and find amenities. I always wanted to live in the Flushing Meadows fairgrounds. Not near it...inside it...with the AMT monorail fully built.

Why aren't we building more plazas...more enclaves...in some sense a large outdoor shopping mall is a far more pedestrian friendly experience than the average downtown.
