Streetfilms Inspires New Jersey “Traffic Safety Quilt”

Check out this livable streets story from Ocean City, New Jersey, where a local arts group, high school art students, and the police department teamed up for a street mural installation. The kicker: the project was inspired by Streetfilms (look for the shout-out at the 4:30 mark).

Ocean City Mayor Sal Perillo says the benefits are threefold: the mural has spurred community involvement, improved neighborhood aesthetics, and will ideally serve as a traffic-calming device along a designated bike route. Depending on community reaction, Perillo says, other intersections could get the same treatment.

  • Ahh… Finally! Some really cool news coming out the state that I love (I know I don’t quite understand either) and call home.

    But then again OC is one of the handful of towns in New Jersey that has been a bright spot in progressive bicycle and pedestrian thinking. Others being, Hoboken, Montclair, South Orange, Morristown, Madison, Highland Park, West Windsor, Princeton, Haddonfield and Avalon (notice the pattern of wealth).
