Where The Streets Have No Cars

What if pedestrians on bicycles, skateboards, and afoot had major roads connecting various prominent neighborhoods and shopping districts all to their own without concern of auto traffic? Atlantan's experienced a small sense of that utopia today for "Atlanta Streets Alive" as 2 miles of N. Highland Ave. was closed to gas powered traffic between the hours of 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. I was able to get a little more mileage and street cycling experience on my grandpa's '78 cruiser I recently brought back to life. The experience really gave adults a chance to feel like a kid again, and the kids got a chance to feel a little more grown up as both rolled, strolled and walked blissfully down N. Highland Ave.
