How to Defend Urbanism in a Pandemic-Scarred America

Thought-provoking blog from our friends at Mobility Lab on the pandemic's impact on urban places. If social distancing and lockdowns have lessened the appeal of living in cities, could COVID cause even the staunchest of urbanists to decamp to the suburbs? https://bit.ly/31juZN2

2020 has been a rough year for the American city. As COVID-19 spread unchecked through the streets, subways, offices, and crowded households of New York City in early March, it wound up exposing the eternal

Our Story

Hi! We’re WalkArlington. We think everyone deserves to get around at any age and ability easily and comfortably—where the grocery store is just steps away, the streets support human activity, and there are spaces for community.

If that sounds appealing to you, you’re in the right place. Our mission is to get more people walking, more of the time, in a more walkable environment in Arlington County, Virginia.

On our website you can find our walking tours and events, updates about walking projects around the County, self-guided walking route maps, and resources to support better walking in Arlington.

We are a part of the Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS) bureau, which serves people who live, work, or play in Arlington by providing programs and services to make it easier to get around without a car.

Had a great time making my video! Thanks to everyone at WalkArlington for encouraging health and happiness across Arlington County.
Any chance we can get the vending machines at Bluemont Park tennis courts restocked? I was running a 16 miler yesterday on the Arlington Loop and badly needed some fuel/ electrolytes, but all the Gatorade was sold out 😫Thanks.
See my post on April 6 about walking around Arlington
This walking map effort is really terrific!
I’ve identified four highly dangerous crosswalks in and around The Village at Shirlington in South Arlington. This area is crucial to accessing and connecting the Washington and Old Dominion Bike Trail, Four Mile RunTrail, Jennie Dean Park, Shirlington Dog Park, The Village at Shirlington and the Nauck Community. At each marked point, there are various and visible pedestrian crossing signs. Nonetheless, motorists continue to speed, dangerously encroach on pedestrians in these crosswalks, physically block crosswalks, and do not yield the right of way to the pedestrians and cyclists as Virginia Law requires.
Southgate Road at Columbia Pike intersection has had a trailer parked on the sidewalk since before summer 2016—18 months. Is it abandoned? Who owns it? It is inconsiderate and inconvenient for pedestrians and forces bikes into the road. There is a parking lot nearby.
Nice plug for the power of walking with your eyes and ears open in this Choose to be Curious interview with Vivek Shinde Patil on WERA 96.7 FM
Great program on Choose to be Curious, WERA 96.7 FM with Graham Coreil-Allen of New Public Sites and his walking tours of #ArlingtonVA #Rosslyn - thank you WalkArlington!
