Street Plans Envisions the Future of NYC Streets

On Thursday, June 22nd, Transportation Alternatives launched the Streetopia campaign to generate excitement around ideas and visions to further transform NYC’s streets to prioritize the movement of people and not cars. Street Plans came up with detailed visions for what car-free or car-lite neighborhood streets could look like in NYC. The picture above shows a vision for a car-free neighborhood street in the Upper West Side. 

“Parts of the city where transit access is high and car ownership is low are primed for car-free streets, says Mike Lydon of the Street Plans Collaborative, who displayed concepts for low-car, people first streets in Lower Manhattan, East Williamsburg, Downtown Flushing, and the Upper West Side.”
