Anyone think that if Broadway were a street in downtown St. Louis it wouldn’t be in the process of extreme widening? Casualties? Oh maybe just the Wainright Building, some fountains, a park and all but six inches of grass next to the Old Courthouse. OK, that may be an exaggeration, but here in St. Louis our streets are mobidly obese and show no sign of getting thinner. In New York? They’re shutting down parts of Broadway and turning it over to . . . pedestrians!
