If you take the time to visit Manhattan and pay close attention, you'll discover it is a great example of the city as a dynamic system. Sidewalks are very wide accommodating a sea of pedestrians. The subway system is so extensive you never have to walk more than 10 minutes in any direction to get somewhere. Pedestrians take the subway trains to get to work, shopping outings, dinners, and nightlife and finally back home. I have relatives there who make 6 figures and don't own cars. Street life is abundant. Cars are rarely able to go above 40km/hr due to all the street life. This is one reason why there are so many yellow cabs all over the place. Only the very rich can afford a car in the city, most people in the shopping district are seen getting into cabs or a subway train with their purchases. I lived in Manhattan for a week and was able to see every single attraction and meet up with all my relatives using the subway and walk up to 10 minutes where I got off. My relatives in Manhattan would have laughed at me if I would have tried to rent a car and park it for the duration of my stay there!
