New York City prides itself as the world’s most vibrant and dynamic metropolis. Unfortunately, it is also plagued by gridlock, noise, exhaust-filled air and a transit system that favors cars and trucks. Filmmaker Stefan Schaefer examines the city’s past to reveal how this came to pass. CONTESTED STREETS offers contrasting lessons from three European cities – Paris, London and Copenhagen – which successfully introduced alternatives to limit automobile congestion, promote public transportation and facilitate walking and bicycle use.
