05/12/2008: "The Melbourne Miracle"
Melbourne, Australia, has done what the sticks-in-the-mud say (as they always say) couldn't be done: they have converted a typically dreary autocentric grid city to a delightful, pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly conglomeration of street villages bustling with radiant life (and profitable businesses).

Mass transit, bike lanes, carfree streets, public squares, mid-block alleys full of shops and cafés, and happy people wandering about everywhere under their own power, meeting, greeting, and enjoying life. Makes you want to go there right away.
