The Case for Carfree Areas in Boston

Boston wants to be known as a progressive city, a city with big ideas. If nothing else, a serious push to reclaim the city for pedestrians would get us the world’s attention, and maybe spark similar reforms in other gridlocked, smog-filled American cities. They’d call it the “Boston Model” of urban development (sorry, Bogotá). And if all this makes driving around the city more difficult, so be it. Boston’s a city. If you like driving so much, move to Framingham. I hear there’s plenty of parking.
