🚗 Of course cars are a problem. If/when (OK, it’s really just IF) I ever leave NYC and my beloved Brooklyn, it would only be for a far less-expensive city, but not any less-expensive city. It has to have as high a walking score (roughly) as Brooklyn. Otherwise, I’m not interested.
Walking is good for you, doesn’t pollute, and, just as important, brings you closer to your community. I’ll all for banning or taxing the heck out of cars (put the collected tax money in public transportation).
