A 3-Way Street in NYC

This video from a visual arts student shows our interconnected role in improving the safety and usability of our cities’ streets. In a case study of one intersection in New York City, the video highlights conflict points between different modes of transportation.

Many conflicts are shown in the video unlike William Whyte‘s observations from his studies of plaza – pedestrians have a natural tendency to avoid collisions with each other (evident in this video of what may be the world’s busiest intersection). Bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists have to take extra caution to respect the rights of the other users of the street.
