Benefits of a Walkable City

Being in school for Urban Planning has its benefits. I am constantly reading articles thinking, “Wow this would be great in Newburgh!” This video did just that for me. Check out speaker, Jeff Speck. He is an urban planner and designer and just wrote a new book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time. It hits all the reasons why Newburgh is worth saving, and it also spurs new ideas about how Newburgh can reinvent itself…imagine if Newburgh was the greenest city in America? (Or at least one of the top greenest if not the greenest). It could happen if we can all put our heads together and create the right kind of change. I really enjoyed this video, I hope you do too.
