Not only was it Walk to Work Week a couple of weeks ago, but we’re a little bit obsessed with streets at the moment. As such, here are a few links to some cool stuff aimed at improving life for pedestrians:

Living Streets: A charity who “campaign to create safe, attractive and enjoyable streets, where people want to walk”

New York High Line Park – walk on the roof, not the street.

Phil Jones will be talking about how “Quality Streets are for sharing” at the next Talking Cities lecture this Thursday (13th May) at the School of Jewellery.

RunKeeper: a popular iPhone app here at BPN used for walking and cycling too. Send the results to Runkeeper’s website and look at some smashing graphs. Mmmm….. graphs. – an urban route walking planner (website by those clever peeps over at Substrakt).
