These are good points from an architectural / design point of view. A big challenge in many cities that have developed (ie. grown extensively) in the past 60 years or so is that the street patterns are not inherently walkable. They are not built in a grid of interlaced streets. Retrofitting these urban and suburban areas to make them more walkable is a significant challenge.

You're right - we face that problem here. We have to work incrementally to rehabilitate what exists, and changing planning policies will hopefully prevent further car-centric development.

I hope.
