The importance of retail in a downtown area.

“Pedestrians have three needs, said John Z Wetmore, producer and host of the TV series ‘Perils for Pedestrians’: They need a way to walk beside the street, a way to cross the street and somewhere to go. If there’s nowhere to go, the others don’t matter much, he said.”

from “The Holy Grail of Community Design.”
