    “People are Pedestrians by Design”

    Some walking-about-town issues have come to mind this week in Downtown Denver. This is a great area for walking…and we don’t do enough of it. A recent article in the New York Times spoke about walking in Denver. “Denver is Urged to Hit the Sidewalks” highlights the work of architect Gosia Kung and the organization she founded, Walk Denver. That’s where we found the great line above, at Gosia’s site. Here’s the link to the Walk Denver site. And, here’s the link to the New York Times article.
