So Long, Winter

Winter may be slowly petering out, but there's still time to catch Bruce's article in the Winter 2014 issue of The Beat.

In his article on transit oriented development in the new millennium, Bruce talks about the evolving kissing habits of teenagers, and how Fairfield County measures up in walkable communities in these changing times.

Being a NewYorker myself, transplanted to Connecticut by way of San Francisco, I've never really understood streets without sidewalks, among other idiosyncrasies of suburban life. I'm thrilled for this shift toward more walkable communities, and a statement of Bruce's that  certainly resonated with me was:
"For a walk to be enjoyable, it should offer the pedestrian a fighting chance of avoiding being hit by an automobile."
Thank you, Bruce. Thank you.

You can read more about what Bruce has to say about transit oriented development in your community and the specific changes he's observed, or more likely, had a hand in orchestrating through his architecture and planning efforts throughout Fairfield County.
