Forget About Cycling or Walking Around Lush Landscapes, Drive Instead

That’s what a New York Times reporter seems to suggest in a bizarre article about the “guilty pleasure” of driving a car through Central Park. Several drivers who were interviewed agreed and said it’s a lot nicer than the chaos found on city streets. No shit! It’s a park! Does that mean we should lay down some asphalt along the beachfront at Coney Island or set up a HOV lane in the wetlands surrounding Jamaica Bay? It’s too bad we didn’t have rainforests in NYC, just imagine how fun those would be to motor through.
