Time Square: two and a half acres of new pedestrian space (by paint and temporary materials)

Traffic moved better. It was much safer. Five new flagship stores opened. It’s been a total home run. Times Square is now one of the top 10 retail locations on the planet. And this is an important lesson, because it doesn’t need to be a zero-sum game between moving traffic and creating public space.

More people on foot is good for business.
