Re: Re: Roches Stores gone!
it seems to work in such large cities as paris, i think that problems of access a largely overstated and unfounded.
perhaps it is the fact that there are not that many medium sized supermarkets in our cities , so as to have one within a ten minute walk (perhaps because of poor density)
If a person can get in a car drive out to whatever suburban center , they still have to push their kids around the shop ,just as the elderly person still has walk around the shop too.
The only reason the city is so full of cars , taking up space which should rightly be for pedestrians , is because of all the people are living in the suburbs in the first place.
No, suburban living gives a false impression of improved life mobility for such groups of people. It has blighted america and is blighting ireland.
