Car-free "Play Street" in Queens is a Great Idea! (Video)


Our friend Clarence at StreetFilms sent us his latest cinematic masterpiece (I suck at keeping expectations low, don't I?). It's about a section of street in Jackson Heights, in Queens, that was closed to cars for the "time-to-play-outside" months and converted into a much-needed park/public space. As you can see in the video, it was a resounding success! It's a good model to follow for other cities.

Share The Road

Share the Road is a campaign, started in London in 2008, that speaks to all road users as people. We advocate simply that we all respect each other’s equal right to use the road.

What does it all mean?

We all use the roads. Some of us prefer to drive, some ride, others walk.

But it’s easy to forget that road users are all the same people; they just chose to travel in a particular way on a particular day.
