Urban Fold

The Web of Walkability

Steve Mouzon visually documents his walkable day-to-day life, and all the places he can get to regularly on foot from his house.

Most of the places Mouzon frequents in his "Web of Daily Life" were selected because of their proximity.

"Today, there are roughly 2-1/2 billion people in China and in India moving from very low-impact agrarian settings into the city. In the US, there's more than one car per person. If China and India do 2-1/2 times as well as the US in their need for cars, there will still be a billion cars on the road in those two countries alone in the next few years, competing with the rest of us for gas. So there's no doubt which direction the price of gas is going... the only questions are "how high?" and "how soon?"

We moved seven years ago from a very unwalkable place to Miami Beach, where we can walk to all our daily needs. We probably crank the car twice a week."
