In Appreciation of the New Times Square

Another cracking film from Streetfilms.org. This one singing the praises of the rejuvenated Times Square in New York City. The Mayor will shortly decide if the changes on the famous square will be made permanent. Let's hope they will be.

The media in New York is hemming and hawing about speed limits for cars on 7th Ave without paying much attention to whether or not life in the big smoke is better for pedestrians and even cyclists because of the project.

Thanks to Gehl Architects, who designed the changes.
