The link to this photo was sent to me by a friend who no longer drives. It comes from The Walkable and Livable Cities Institute, who posted it on Facebook yesterday, with this caption:
“Most of us will outlive our ability to drive. If we want to be able to stay in our neighborhoods, in our homes, beyond our driving years, we need streets that support us in walking. This neighborhood street in Smithtown, NY, could really use at least a sidewalk.”
The same–if not more–could be said about all the undeveloped streets in my part of SE Portland.
