do you have good pictures of car-free streets?
- Hi! My name is Katti Sta. Ana. I'm a bicycle advocate, a member of the Firefly
Brigade, and a former bicycle officer of the City of Marikina. Right now, I'm an
urban planning student and art teacher in Baguio, a mountain city in the
Philippines. I am trying to change people's opinions on a proposal to
pedestrianize Session Roadthe main artery of Baguio City's downtown
area. Many people are opposed to it but I think it is because of a lack of
knowledge about the benefits of pedestrianization.
I am hoping that you could help me by sending me good pictures of
- pedestrianized streets, and
- streets that you think need to be pedestrianized (polluted, chaotic, and
teaming with cars, or scary, blighted, needing to be revitalized are good
The pictures can be from any part of the world but if you also have pictures
from Asian, African, or South American cities, that would be great. I will show
them to stakeholders in the proposed Session Road pedestrianization project.
Hopefully, the visual images will help them rethink their position and open up
to the idea of pedestrianization.
If the pictures' resolution would come out well if printed in the standard 3 in. X
5 in. size, that would be the greatest. Thanks so much! You may email them to
me at fuschia.insect@.... If you email me pictures, and we are able to
convince people in this part of the world to try out a car-free Session Road,
that would be a great achievement for all of us! I promise to let you know
whatever comes out of this project.
