On Broadway


A nice post over at Discovering Urbanism about Mayor Bloomberg's plans to reclaim big chunks of Broadway for pedestrians. As I had noted earlier this month, this is a big "New York hello" to Albany, which quashed his plans to shift the car/pedestrian dynamic by enacting a London-style congestion fee for driving south of 60th Street: "Who needs your state-enabling legislation? I control the streets, and I'm giving more of them back to the pedestrians!" All hail King Bloomberg.
