    Heh, I always figured automobile traffic was one area broken windows might make a real difference.

  • bronislav_malinowski

    I’m nervous about how streetsblog and other livable streets site are coming our as pro “broken windows”. it may be good in traffic, but it is horribly destructive to civil rights and livability in other areas of city-living, especially for minorities. if we want to broaden livable streets, we need to take a strong stance with potential allies, including fighting against class- and race-based violence & discrimination… which often comes at the behest (esp in the case of NYPD) broken-windows policing.
