User Friendly Sidewalks

Just reading online about an interesting new concept: Livable Streets  It is a movement to make our city streets more pedestrian friendly and safer for bicycles.  New York, San Francisco and other cities have added bike lanes, benches, plazas with tables and market umbrellas for people to relax amid the frenetic pace of the city.  People can read their newspaper, visit with friends, have coffee or lunch and enjoy the outdoors.  What a great new movement for urban life!
