I actually came to the NYT story Broadway Is Busy, With Pedestrians, if Not Car Traffic from a post on Reuters by Felix Salmon How the NYT sees bikes on Broadway which offers a fascinating counterbalance to the original article. However that isn’t what I’m wanting to post about. What I did want to note is that the info graphic is an interesting study of simplification and visualization of a street that I’ve often walked down. If a person walks down any of those cross sections of bike lanes, car lanes and sitting areas, it changes constantly yet has a consistent flow. I’ve often wondered what the pattern looked from above—now I know.
