Sidewalks With a Slow Lane

Most days, New York's sidewalks hardly seem big enough for everyone on them.  That's in part why the city is kicking cars off its streets, to create more walkable area.  But there's still the daily frustration and clashes of speedsters and strollers, locals staring down the block and tourists enjoying the view.  The latest evidence of this most urban of daily struggles is in today's New York Post: someone painted lanes on Fifth Avenue.  One for tourists, one for New Yorkers.

Next up: someone needs to get out there with a speed gun and report back.
