I see in the Toronto Star that the city council has decided to create two pedestrian zones, the first two of their kind in the big T.O. Never mind that they’re miniscule; never mind that they’re both (I think) in the heart of the university core, and therefore practically pedestrian anyway – it’s a step in the right direction.
I only wish they had thought of it sooner, and that more and more cities would jump on the bandwagon. It’s so pleasant, being able to walk and talk, shop and dine at will without having to worry about streetlights and cars splashing puddles and such. Above is Cuba St in Wellington, a very congenial pedestrian street full of yummy cafes and cool bookstores.
Do you have pedestrian zones where you live?
