Undoing Miami's "Paved Paradise": An Interview with Meg Daly 10.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
I recently met Meg Daly, the visionary behind The Underline : a 10-mile long, nature-inspired cycle and pedestrian track that will run through the heart of Miami alongside US Route 1. Inspired by similar projects in New York City, Seoul and Austin, The Underline's 100 feet by 10 mile design, with 120 total acres of open space, will also incorporate green infrastructure systems to manage storm water; improve urban air and mitigate heat; promote biodiversity; and provide recreation space for millions for people. As I travel back to Miami this week for a meeting of The Nature Conservancy leaders, I'm excited to share this story:   Pascal Mittermaier: Can you tell me about your background and what inspired you to start this project? Meg Daly: Well, I'm not an ecologist or urban planner. In my career, I was a marketer--I did promotions for TV stations. But I've always had a passion for parks, especially inner city parks. In my travels to cities I was always drawn to urban green spaces. Four years ago, I had a ...

The Second Avenue Subway: Another Small Piece Of The Sustainable City 9.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
The story of mass transit on the east side of Manhattan is a sad saga of government promises and failures. The old elevated lines on Second and Third Avenues were knocked down, but never replaced by the promised subway line. As the city revived in the 21st century, the Lexington line was the only subway serving the east side and it became dangerously crowded during rush hours. On New Year's Day 2017, the impossible took place and the first phase of a new Second Avenue subway line was finally opened. This PR video tells the story. The MTA website describes the new line's route and features. In this season of doubt about government and the possibilities of acting as a community, we see living proof of our ability to work together and build. A few months ago the MTA was hedging on meeting the deadline of opening the new line by January 1, and Governor Cuomo made it his personal mission to lead the project to completion. MTA management, unions, and contractors all became aware that this project had special ...
