Which are the world's best streets, and what are the physical, designable characteristics that make them great? To answer these questions, Allan Jacobs has surveyed street users and design professionals and has studied a wide array of street types and urban spaces around the world. With more than 200 illustrations, all prepared by the author, along with analysis and statistics, Great Streets offers information on street dimensions, plans, sections, and patterns of use, all systematically compared. It also reveals Jacob's eye for the telling human and social details that bring streets and communities to life.
