A Car Free Street in Queens

Streetfilms has a new film about a street in Queens, NY, that is closed during the summer and serves as a community park, a space for children to play, for neighbors to interact, and for people to generally spend time together outside. Although this doesn’t focus on utility cycling specifically, stories like these are very important, as they help to emphasize the significance and power of conceptualizing public space different in a way that doesn’t hinge entirely on the automobile. Enjoy.
