Car Free Day Festivities

The lunch-time celebration was a little subdued, but on point. There were plenty o' demonstrations, sign ups with Zip Car and WABA, make your own smoothie (by pedaling a bike), the new Metrobus and glimpses of what a careless pedestrian thoroughfare would look like (F St NW between 7th and 9th). Traffic didn't seem to be too affected, so I don't see why closing F Street to normal vehicle traffic would be that controversial. But I digress. Nice effort by the city and other interested parties to promote this idea.
