Atlanta Streets Alive: Human-Powered Amusement | Jenn Graham

Open Streets events are spreading all over the world, leading city-wide advocacy for better health, sustainability and transportation. Even car-centric cities such as Atlanta are closing signature streets to cars, and opening them up for “human powered amusement.” It’s a time when citizens of all ages, shapes, neighborhoods and athletic ability come together for a few hours to take back miles of open streets for fun, fitness and transportation.
