The first unHappy Hour event last night brought out about 30 activists.
Attendees were treated to a presentation by Jason Rothstein on his new book Carless In Chicago. Jason outlined many of the bullet points about why and how people choose to go car-free. After the event, Jason was on-hand to sell and sign copies of his book. Break The Gridlock bought five copies for the BTG Library.
Then, Julie Dworkin, representing the Albany Home Zone, gave a solid overview of the project. Julie detailed how a bunch of neighbors came together and initiated this streetscaping change intended to slow automobile traffic on their block.
After the speakers attendees mixed and discussed these and other topics.
