"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." -- Edward Abbey

The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the living tissue of the city.
Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable; moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving
the buildings as mere islands of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic.
-James Marston Fitch, historic preservationist (1909-2000)
