The Houston Chronicle backs the drive for a walkable street once a week in Houston:
On vacation, we gravitate toward street life - spots with shop windows, sidewalk cafes, street musicians and people-watching galore. And we always wonder: How can we get more places like that in Houston?
In this car-dominated, city, it's hard to know where to start. But we like the idea floated in a new on-line petition. Why not, it asks, open one city street to pedestrians once a week? Why not, one evening out of seven, ban cars from one stretch of pavement, and let bikes and street life rule?

Streets for feet!
