Suburban life has always been synonymous with long hours in the car-- going to work, school, the grocery store, the mall, soccer practice and friends’ homes. Some people even drive to take a walk.
Sure! It’s an obscenely wealthy town whose residents nearly all feed from the federal-tax teat. They have the wealth --free time, nutrition, safe space-- to enjoy walking.
They should try it inside Washington.
Jesus, what a strange country the USA is where walking to the shops is seen as something new and revolutionary.
“America’s most walkable suburb offers lessons for towns everywhere wanting to thrive in the years to come…” I see, so now the USA is ‘everwhere.’ It was bad enough when it was just ‘the world.’
We can thank that idiot Robert Moses for privileging cars over people. What a horrible legacy he left.
