StreetFilm: Room to Breathe

Room to Breathe
A StreetFilm by Clarence Eckerson Jr.
Running Time: 3 minutes 41 seconds

Inspired by a poster produced by Portland's Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) in the mid-1990s, this weekend Transportation Alternatives gathered a gaggle of cyclists on 42nd Street in Manhattan to stage New York's own dramatic illustration of how much street space would be saved if everyone riding an automobile were traveling on a bicycle or bus.

This StreetFilm gives a behind-the-scenes look at how the event was staged and lets the participants speak about what brought them to the Livable Streets movement. T.A. aims to have the poster available by Summer 2007.
