I've long been a fan of Mayor Boomberg's efforts to calm traffic in Manhattan.
Today we read about his administration's decision to restrict 34th Street to buses and pedestrians.
I like this because it will add a bit to the dissuasion of vehicular visitors to Manhattan, but I am slightly hesitant about any plan that crosses buses with pedestrians.
I still hope to live to see the day when Manhattan will be entirely relieved of the noise of the gasoline engine and auto horns, and when most of its streets are exclusively for pedestrians and bikes.
