Pedestrian Streets In Curitiba, Brazil (Time to Step Up, NYC)

Here is a fantastic little video posted just yesterday by the good folks over at Streetfilms.  It features Curitiba’s former Mayor and founder of Bus Rapid Transit, Jaime Lerner, discussing the history and significance of the city’s first pedestrian street.

As Elizabeth Press points out, this clip really illustrates how much catching up we have to do here in NYC.  The Times Square transformation is a decent start, but we’ve got a long way to go!
