"Cities with bike lanes and densely configured, well-designed housing will attract young urbanites for the long-term. It’s expensive to live in Paris, but there’s gold raining down on the streets: despite protests from drivers, the city of luminous light has closed large sections of its two-lane motorways that run on either side of the Seine River to create ribbons of urban beauty – even the possibility of floating botanic gardens – for pedestrians and cyclists. Cities plodding along according to post-war principles of planning that privileged roadways for cars – not people – do so at their peril."
