"When you design a city for cars, it fails everyone."

In a way a water park simply cannot do.

"The new transportation system in Medellín ... is not only a physical solution. It is not only transportation. It is also a social instrument that involves the community, that integrates the community in all the city."

But one must be willing to think outside self-limiting boxes. In New Albany, just the mere act of thinking itself would be a fine first step.

Where Did We Go Wrong? I never realized how dumb our cities are until I saw what a smart one looks like, by Maz Ali (Upworthy)

... A healthy diet and regular physical activity are some of the most important things we can do for our health as individuals, but flawed city design has restricted opportunities for people to make those choices, which has contributed greatly to what are essentially public health epidemics — ones that require public health solutions.

Most cities have been designed for cars, not for people.

Look out your window and see for yourself.
