Reshaping A Neighborhood, With The Pedestrian In Mind

A look at Hong Kong's most crowded neighborhood.

Maisonneuve urban affairs critic Christopher DeWolf visits Mongkok, one of Hong Kong's main shopping districts and one of the most densely-populated residential neighbourhoods in the world. Exploring its street markets and "theme streets," DeWolf outlines a new plan that will eventually reshape Mongkok's streets with the pedestrian in mind above all else.
