Livable Streets Promised Land

good_feature.jpg

Here’s
a nice visual of what cities will look like when the livable streets
movement has completely emerged from the wilderness (sorry for the
extended metaphor, couldn’t help it today). GOOD Magazine ran this photosim done by our very own Carly Clark in their transportation issue, with text by Streetsblog Editor-in-Chief Aaron Naparstek. They’ve got a whole interactive graphic that walks you through the elements of a livable street, and — hats off to my coworkers — it looks great.

GOOD is also putting on a photosim contest
where readers can submit their own designs for a livable street. If you
send something in, don’t worry too hard about impressing the jury.
Aaron will be the only judge.
