Car-free streets for NYC Chinatown?

Imagine car-free Chinatown streets full of alfresco dining and sidewalk tea shops instead of today's mess of double-parked cars, delivery trucks and idling buses.

That's the radical proposal under consideration by Chinatown business leaders such as Wellington Chen, executive director of the Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corp., a nonprofit group that promotes business in the neighborhood.

I think that this would be great for Chinatown! I have not met Wellington Chen personally but I do admire his activism in the Chinatown community.
