Downtown Ann Arbor

What makes a downtown district appealing? Why do people go out of their way to walk down one side of the street and not the other? Using the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan as a case study, this exploration of successful downtown streets weaves together pedestrian interviews with footage of streetscapes and sidewalk behavior to show what healthy blocks have in common.

This is a great site. I like the topics you cover. Very much enjoyed Kirk's video - it all seems so obvious but not so readily achieved.

Im starting up a similar blog in Sydney. I have linked to your site.

Nice work. said...
