Streetfight : Handbook for an Urban Revolution [New York]
As New York City’s transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan managed the seemingly impossible and transformed streets into dynamic spaces safe for pedestrians and bikers. She made the street grid function better by reallocating the space that’s already there. Breaking the street into its component parts, she demonstrates, with step-by-step visuals, how to rewrite its underlying “source code”, with pointers on how to add protected bike paths, improve crosswalk space, and provide visual cues to reduce speeding. Includes examples of how this new street system has already made its way around the world, from pocket parks in Mexico City and Los Angeles to more pedestrian-friendly streets in Auckland and Buenos Aires, and innovative bike-lane designs and plazas in Austin, Indianapolis, and San Francisco. This book deconstructs, reassembles, and reinvents the street, inviting readers to see it in ways they never imagined.
