friday favorites: washington street, norwalk, connecticut

Finally, finally getting around to sharing this great post by Charlie Gardner at Old Urbanist with some nicely articulated thoughts (as well as resource links) about the value of narrow streets. He even squeezed down the street above to illustrate his point, drawing inspiration from Nieuwendijk in Amsterdam!

Be sure to check out the lively debate that ensues in the comments (are cities just shopping malls?) as well as the rest of his blog. See it narrowed!
