Oculus Book Talk "Street Smart: The Rise of Cities and the Fall of Cars"


When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8

Where: At The Center   

Street Smart: The Rise of Cities and the Fall of Cars explores recent trends that show that Americans, particularly Millennials, have been driving markedly less than they used to. Author Sam Schwartz describes how this change in car usage ultimately benefits cities, making them healthier and increasing property values, in a book that has been praised for its timeliness and insight.

Following his presentation on Street Smart, Sam Schwartz will be joined by Alex Garvin for a conversation about transportation and urbanism.
