This is a cool photo but also depressing. Look at how much of this visible land space is devoted entirely to car movement and storage:
Of course buses and bikes move on these roads too, but primarily this is cars which is why there are so many lanes. And I haven’t even highlighted everything because there are some other parking garages way in the background.
This is Downtown Atlanta. The historic starting point of the city with gridded streets that were built years before automobiles. These parcels with garages and surface lots were filled with buildings that housed people at one point. Now they house cars.
Even one of the most walkable parts of the city is affected heavily by car dependency. It’s impossible to live in a bubble of good urbanism in a metro area that relies so heavily on cars (and mostly single-occupancy ones) that serve the larger car-centric built environment. Sprawl affects us all.
