Streetfilms: Fixing the Great Mistake of Planning for Cars

FTGMlogo4web"Fixing the Great Mistake" is a new Streetfilms series that
examines what went wrong in the early part of the 20th century, when

shows how planning for cars drastically altered Park Avenue in New York City. Watch and
see what Park Avenue used to look like, how we ceded it to the
automobile, and what we need to do to reclaim the street as a space
where people take precedence over traffic.
