As the groundswell of public and official support for Open Streets PHL continues to build, the Philadelphia Inquirer publishes a new article putting Philly’s Open Streets proposals in the context of similar events around the world.  The piece also muddies the waters, however, by including some bizarre comments by Drexel professor of civil engineering Joseph Martin.

Between 2010 and 2013, we gained an additional 27,000 people - more than during the previous 10 years, and more than the suburbs.
