Brilliant study exploring the social and psychological ramifications of traffic on how neighbors perceive their street. Please share!

Donald Appleyard’s study on the relationship between level of traffic & how people experience their streets.

The amount of traffic on your street can affect how many friends you have there.

I wonder how suburban development and lower density would affect these numbers?

The Southside is a vibrant neighborhood, full of texture! and layers! South 17th is one of my favorite streets: the view of churches up on the Slopes, streets paved with Belgium block, the Gypsy Cafe and Beehive, and a nice little kink in the street just south of Carson which creates an interesting view of the buildings down the street and up the Slopes.
