Very interesting data and discussion about the uses of city streets and urban areas, encompassing the use of public squares, pedestrian flows, interactions on street corners, architecture and development and incentive zoning in cities for the years between 1972 and 1988. Made me wish very much what Whyte and his graduate students would uncover filming and observing city life in the age of cell phones, telecommuting, and the fall-off of pedestrian movement in the last twenty years.
