I am totally this friend. Dodge potholes and cross difficult roads yes, but how else do you spot all those quirky street signs, find that tiny shop where you get an obscure brand of cough drops, smell the fresh flowers being woven into garlands, find the coconut water guy, admire that beautiful old house with creepers running along the walls hidden behind ugly advertising boards? Once a walker, always a walker! :) #walking #citydiaries #pedestrianrights #walkablecities

A blast from the past! Our leader catching up with her first boss in her planning and urban development career after 13 years. Barry Preston, Managing Director of the Armory Revival Company in Providence, Rhode Island paid us a visit in Kamloops on his way to ski some powder in Blue River. The Armory Revival Company specializes in brownfield development, converting old industrial sites into mixed use, healthy, sustainable neighbourhoods. Our leader's passion for community development was born working for Barry, Mark, BJ and Jan, as the Assistant Director of Development for the Armory Revival Company. Ever been to Providence? It is a beautiful city with a vibrant, revitalized downtown, strong arts and culture scene, thriving economy and stunning architecture. We highly recommend a visit to this walkable city in the summertime to visit the famous Waterfire Festival, dine in some of the best ethnic restaurants and wander down the old cobblestone streets surrounding Brown University. Don't forget a trip to the old textile district on the City's west side to see some of the Armory Revival Company's mill conversions and other revitalized buildings ! #armoryrevivalcompany #armoryrevival #brownfields #convertedfactory #healthybuiltenvironments #walkablecities #waterfireprovidence #goodmemories #solidboss #providencerhodeisland #chilangos #brownuniversity #kamloopsbc #kamloopsbcnow #blueriverbc #doubletreekamloops #passionforplanning #breakfastwithchampions #untilnexttime #reunionplanningstartsnow #merakicommunityplanning #communityplanning #publicspacedesign #creativemindsatwork #risingsunmills #pearlstreetlofts #kamloopsviews #downtownkamloops #performingartscentreforkamloops at Kamloops, British Columbia

@Amtrak @Detroit and @twepi (Windsor, Ontario) our first visit was fantastic. Windsor was walkable and we adored the street art and shops. Can we move in? Special love to @bbbcanada and the Windsor Tunnel drivers who helped us navigate our border crossing. Detroit! We love all your parts and your people. We tackled so much and there's so much more. So many shows, #Winterbalst #Greektown the Wright African American museum and the #rivalyseries See you in warmer weather! #detroit #windsorontario #amtrak #winterblast2019 #grewktown #andersonpaak #morefriends #myentirebodyhurts #walkablecities #yearofconcerts #yearoftravel #BLACKGIRLMAGIC #justagirlfromthebronx #idodopeshit at Detroit-Windsor Tunnel

Solar covered, climate controlled bike tunnels could create new ways to travel across entire cities without cars, gasoline, pollution, accidents, etc. They would promote health, new jobs, and fun times... #electricvehicles #gogreen #health #healthy #greenjuice #carless #carlesscity #walkablecities #future #futuretechnology #escooter #bike #ebike #love # #cityplanning #citplanner #futurecity #fowardthinking #creative #create #ideas #gogreenorgoextinct #carfreezone #fowardthinker #solar #solarpower

Cognitive vs Preferential Walking Most of the time, we use our cognition to follow a route from point of origin to point of destination. Our mental processes tell us to take the shortest and most direct route even if this means traversing through treeless, littered and ugly sidewalks. But what if you are offered information about the finer qualities of adjacent sidewalks? A block or two over, one might encounter sidewalks lined with trees, benches, cafés and fine shops? Equipped with a tool that displays neighborhood walkability, we can easily transition from cognitive to preferential walking. If walking with shady trees enhances your well-being a walkability map highlighting natural beauty can transform your walking experience. Or you might prefer sidewalks with cafes and shops or routes with great architectural building edges. Preferential walking is now possible through the Walkspan App where sidewalks are defined using seven dimensions deemed important to the experience of walking namely nature, architecture, amenities, comfort, safety, interest and access. Only available for Manhattan, New York. -Coming soon to other cities- #walkablecities #walking #routes #navigation #googlemaps #applestore #googleplay #walkability #walkableneighborhood #preferential #cognitive #smartcities #pedestrians #enhancements #smalldifferences #sidewalks #nature #amenities #interest #google

Pontevedra Spain banned cars around 1999. Carbon dioxide emissions have been cut by 70% since implementation. No more car accidents leading to injury or death. No more traffic jams halting your car. No more traffic lights halting your feet; from crossing the street. No more traffic rages and noise disturbances at night. The residents sleep better. Breath better. Eat better. Live better. In terms of shipping and transporting to and from the city, parking lots have been positioned right outside the city; at a certain radius all the way around. #electricvehicles #gogreen #health #healthy #greenjuice #carless #carlesscity #walkablecities #future #futuretechnology #escooter #bike #ebike #love # #cityplanning #citplanner #futurecity #fowardthinking #creative #create #ideas #gogreenorgoextinct #carfreezone #fowardthinker #solar #solarpower

Starting to explore more of the urban side of the neighbourhood and not just the beaches (well, beach this afternoon!). This morning’s walk was through town and to the Foreshore which is all only a few minutes from my place - down this gorgeous little shneaky green path! (I mean, I’m sure it’s creepy af at night but this morning it was lovely 🤣) I love living in the middle of everything, and I am only a few minutes walk to anything 🥰 so lovely to have walking options on coast, through parks and also in urban spaces 🌿 at Newcastle, New South Wales

But what surprised me the most when I first visit years ago, was its street art 💕• Swipe ⬅️➡️ • #urban #streetphotography #streetstyle #streetlife #travel #travelphotography #passionpassport #duo #urbanphotography #blackandwhite #dope #blackandwhitephotography #art #tagging #instatravel #streetart #antwerp #belgium #walkablecities #cool #streetlife #colors #instatravel #antwerpen at Antwerp, Belgium

Belém tower in the #Belem neighborhood is one of the most iconic sites in Lisbon #Portugal. I was able to catch this incredible shot right at #sunset last February. The whole Belem area is full of amazing monuments and museums. The Belem tower, while beautiful, was actually a prison at one point!

🇵🇹 | These yellow trams are still a popular way for locals to get around the city. The network expands to various parts of Lisbon, all the way past scenic Belém to Algés. But the fact that it goes through much of the downtown, appeals to both residents and commuters because navigating in a car in that part of town can be tricky • Walkable cities • Swipe ⬅️➡️ #urban #streetphotography #streetstyle #streetlife #travel #travelphotography #passionpassport #duo #urbanphotography #blackandwhite #dope #blackandwhitephotography #art #bike #instatravel #portugal #lisbon #lisboa #tranvia #streetart #instatravel #yellow #walkablecities #tranvia at Lisbon, Portugal

Car free city area of NYC before n after. Building smart car free city centers that expand outward is a great way to sustain the planet.

🇯🇵 | Kyoto is regularly voted one of the best bicycle cities in Asia, and for good reason: The city is largely flat, roads are well maintained, drivers are sane and there are plenty of places to purchase or rent a bicycle • More bikes, please 🚲 • Swipe ⬅️➡️ #urban #streetphotography #streetstyle #streetlife #travel #travelphotography #passionpassport #duo #urbanphotography #blackandwhite #dope #blackandwhitephotography #art #bike #instatravel #japan #kyoto #instajapan #japanese #streetart #cyclying #japanesestyle #japanstreet #cooljapan #japantravel #walkablecities at Kyoto, Japan

Electric Toyota Iroad looks so cool and tilts into turns. This could be an affordable way for people to move away from gasoline. We need this vehicle in the USA.
