More on the sustainable city

Janette Sadik-Khan, visionary transportation commissioner in New York City, is profiled in this Esquire story.  "What's important locally?", you might ask.  The details of her transformation of the streets of New York are informative for any city, and the ambitious expansions of bike lanes and pedestrian spaces are models of what we can be too.  Some of it is already happening (our new bridge, for example, won't disenfranchise drivers, by the way, but it will provide dramatic improvements for cyclists and pedestrians).  More is coming and the change will be welcome.
