Zoom out a little bit, and you’ll see the markers of a livable city revolution on this corner. To the right, bike share, to the left, complete streets, in front, a new neighborhood taking shape. The Center for Total Health (@kptotalhealth) is right behind the new construction.
This is a lot different than what this intersection used to look like in September, 1947:
Even though there was no sidewalk, there was a street car back then. Sadly, this other photograph shows the tracks getting ready to be ripped out on neighboring Pennsylvainia avenue in 1962:
That phase is over. Soon you’ll be able to come to the Center via a portfolio of active transportation options.
Our cities are changing. Active transportation is back. Enjoy the revolution.
