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.

We’ll be taking a break from posting on Streetsblog tomorrow. Enjoy the matzoh ball soup and Cadbury eggs everyone. See you back here on Monday.
