Streets for feet: The world’s great walking cities
Good urban design is about making a city as walkable as possible, which affects us more deeply than we know. Neuroscientist Shane O’Mara writes in praise of the world’s great walking cities
Walking a city is the best way to get to know it. You can’t get to know the mood of a place, its energy and pace, when you’re driving or being driven around. On foot you are directly in touch with city life in all its dirt and glory: the smells, the sights, the thrum of footsteps on pavements, shoulders jostling for position and placement, the street lights, the snatches of conversation.
