Walkable cities

    Pedestrian friendly urban planning. For the past century American cities have been designed with the car in mind. But what if planners made people the top priority, where walk-ability was the number one priority. We’ll talk about this new movement with EUGENIE BIRCH, author of The Urban and Regional Planning Reader and Co-Director of the Penn Institute for Urban Research at the University of Pennsylvania, and with CHRISTOPHER LEINBERGER a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution. His new book is the Option of Urbanism: Investing in a New American Dream.
