DOWNTOWN’S TUNNELS

The NYTimes has a story about cities’ skywalks and tunnels being big mistakes. It includes this oft-used quote from Mayor Miller:

“If I could take a cement mixer and pour cement in and clog up the tunnels, I would do it today,” said Laura Miller, the mayor of Dallas, referring to the city’s tunnels. “It was the worst urban planning decision that Dallas has ever made. They thought it was hip and groovy to create an underground community, but it was a death knell.”

Agreed.
