Yes, now he does.
And he offers an interesting rule-of-thumb: ...the goal is not to drive to your destination; it's to get to a place where you can park and leave your car..
I was pondering the distinction between "traditional," pedestrian-friendly cities and "modern," auto-centric ones...When you drive to a great walking city, such as NYC or Haarlem, the goal is not to drive to your destination; it's to get to a place where you can park and leave your car. In most American cities, you're looking to park at your destination. Do you see the distinction? In New York, anywhere within a dozen blocks is fine, because you're just going to walk from place to place anyway. But in most parts of most US cities, it's a parking lot mentality - how close can I get to the front door?
