A Glimpse Into the Future

I recently found a great article on USA Today’s app about the future of city life and it is thanks to visionaries and green construction practices. The article is about an exhibit of 10 major metropolitans in the year 2030 where you hardly see a car in the heart of New York City by creating green spaces and pedestrian malls similar to the recent move of turning Broadway into a pedestrian only area.  I think the picture below is a move in the right direction. I know I enjoy the French Quarter here in New Orleans much more in the areas that are blocked off from traffic.

What are your thoughts for the future? Is green the way to go?
