I have to say, this idea has crossed my mind once or twice whenever I have to walk through Midtown, Times Square, SoHo or any street within a quarter mile of WTC. To the tourists' credit, they are here to spend money in the city. They're also generally from areas of the country and the world where walking as a mode of transit is discouraged by a widespread sprawl mentality. Nevertheless, 8.3 million of us live and do business here, and practically speaking, drawing lanes might not be such a bad move. Of course, the tourists are too busy looking up to see how big the buildings are, so it probably wouldn't even matter.
