Noah Kazis of Streetsblog reports on the "bulletin" from the Dept. of Health:

"The evidence is pretty overwhelming - just 30 minutes of walking or biking each weekday reduces your risk of premature death by 20 percent - and the department's recommendations are clear: New Yorkers should drive less, and the city should build the infrastructure to make walking, biking, and riding transit as safe and convenient as possible."
