Reposted from Scaledown, and worth watching. This is my ideal place to live.
I studied urban studies in college 16 years ago. I have seen different documentaries on Urban Design. I have always appreciated to desire to redesign streets like the old neighborhoods. A study showed that the average person would walk 400 yards before they would get in the car to go somewhere. That is one element the impaired the idea of old nieghbourhood design. The Term for this is called New Urbanism, The town of Seaside Florida was one of the first towns to be design in this manor (Seaside was used as the backdrop for the Movie “The Truman Show” with Jim Carey)
I have attached a few links on the Subject
I think Windsor still has a few interesting distinct older neighbourhoods like Walkerville, Riverside, Erie and Ottawa Street and Sandwich town and a few other areas. These older neighbourhoods are places where a total need for a car is not necessary and the are interesting places to see and visit.
I hope the hear more about New Urbanism and some of Windsor’s Unique Neighbourhood in future stories
