Halloween is CNU's Favorite Holiday
"Halloween is naturally a favorite for the New Urbanist," says Steve Filmanowicz of the Congress for the New Urbanism. "Think about it, all American holidays have a focus on community, which we naturally appreciate. However, a unique element of All Hallow's Eve is the focus on congregating in the streets, meeting your neighbors, and, of course, just getting out there and walking around! (Or scooting, as the case may be.) This is one of the few occasions in almost every part of our great nation where everyone is, regardless of the weather, encouraged to enjoy the simple pleasures of using their sidewalks (if they have them)."
In his vigor to appreciate the holiday, Mr. Filmanowicz rolled into the office, sporting his festive costume. With the goal of scaring highway builders and sub-division developers alike, Mr. Filmaowicz showed up as the dreaded - MASS TRANSIT!!!
