Please do not bring your car into Manhattan. If you have another option for getting to work, please use it. #SandyNYC—

Yes! Finally, a North American Mayor announces: Cars are not welcome in cities. First, Urbanists, lets savour this moment of victory!
It’s not often that we get such encouraging messages, and when we do, it’s appropriate that urbanites celebrate.
- Half Hour Commutes take 14X longer in this traffic!
We have a long road ahead of us. Though his announcement applies to the very near future, let us imagine if this was permanent.
To say that Traffic was terrible today in NYC is an understatement. And with this experience, we shall learn, that even with 3 passengered cars, driverless or not, will never work in cities.
