* Click here to view video.

Streetfilms' Robin Urban Smith hopped a bus to Boston last week to hear world renowned urban strategist and champion of the livable streets movement, Enrique Peñalosa speak at the Boston Public Library. According to our friends at the LivableStreets Alliance, who organized his four day visit, more than 1,000 Bostonians attended the various events planned in his name.

Aptly nicknamed the "The Hub," or "The Walking City," Boston boasts the oldest subway system in North America and has the highest light rail ridership of any U.S. city. Listen what happens when a group of concerned citizens in a city like Boston dialogues with the former mayor of a pioneering city like Bogota.
