I’ve been thinking about this article in a roundabout way lately and thought to search for it again. The city up for discussion is the ever so lovely Venice. There’s no auto of any kind here. You walk. Can you imagine how much healthier you’d be? And all the details you’d get to notice? It seems like a much calmer way for your brain. You could walk into the street without worrying about being hit with tons of steel and neither would animals. Deliveries and pick-ups are all done by hand cart. “Garbage in particular is fascinating; there is pickup every morning of something, plastics one day, paper the other and then garbage, all done by handcart. They have to do it quickly because of the rats. It is labor intensive but it is efficiently done.” Now what if we had a city like that here in the states? Have some spread out buildings. What if we had cobble stone walk ways to get to nearby shopping. You could ride your bike if you needed to go out a little further. Maybe a stretch of road connecting city to city that buses and semis use. Could you imagine the drop of pollution? There’d be no access of food buying at the grocery store because you could only buy what you could carry. All food could be fresh that day! Maybe it’s just me, but that sounds like an awesome way to go! Will SimCity allow me to create this?
