I don't think I would get that same benefit if Uncle Phil expanded the stadium again to fit a Superbowl-size crowd. Besides, the fans all hog the bike paths getting to/from the games. I guess we have a shortage of expressways.
The Giants and Jets were lucky to thrive in the Meadowlands because the lack of foot traffic made it impossible for the Nets and Devils to develope a fan base. Both teams left the sprawl and are now in cities.
I'm a bit confused that everyone here seems to think that sidewalks are necessary in order for a person to walk along a road. Do they have alligators in the ditches or are your motorists really so awful that they will hit you on the shoulder? Or do you not even have shoulders? Maybe the little joke about the (L)east coast is too true. Here in the west, most of our roads don't have sidewalks, but it is not uncommon to see people walking along them, although it is becoming rarer as our population gets larger, if you know what I mean.
Does not surprise me. Would have been more surprised if they accomodated peds and bikes.
Rode back into the US from Tijuana. It was the hot ticket. Didn't have to wait in the car traffic lanes or the pedestrian lines, which were a nightmare. When we got to the ped lines and they opened up a gate just for the two of us.

You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.
Then again how about a nice game of Chess?

Also, if a driver carelessly hit a pedestrian and injured him/her, why is it "lawsuit crazy" that the injured person would sue? That's what the civil justice system is for, and it isn't only in our society. Personal injury lawsuits happen in almost every society in the world, at least since the time of the Roman Empire, if not longer.

My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

But in this case, we're talking about roads that fit in this catagory: "Yes, Sir, I guess you can walk on that road, but only a fool would walk on that road." If a road is built for 65mph, limited shoulder, limited access, not even a rest stop, barely space to pull your car over in an emergency, broken glass and scrap metal on the sides, a flimsy guardrail keeping you out of miles of swamp. Well, ooookay... you wanna walk or ride your bike there? really? why would ya? OH yes, to get to the Super Bowl. When you're finished, you can go take a few loops around Newark Airport -- all the Crit guys meet at Terminal C.
I really don't feel that my freedom is impaired because I can't walk or ride my bike on the New Jersey Turnpike. So jaded.
