Life Without Cars

Great little video about Summer Streets 2008, an event in which several miles of Manhattan streets were closed to automobiles (h/t Atrios).

Update: Just wanted to add that because I’ve been sequestered in my apartment all summer working on the book, I’d forgotten how unpleasant driving can be.  Having an iPod makes driving a little more tolerable, but I genuinely don’t understand why anyone would want to spend mote than about eight minutes a day inside a car.  This video is a gentle reminder that there are alternatives out there to traffic, gridlock, smog, noise pollution, etc.
