YouTuber Awkward Adolescent gives us an amazingly detailed review of a sidewalk in Palmer, Alaska. A few trees in the neighborhood would go a long way to fixing the wind problem. The quality of engineering in sidewalks is something you never think about if you drive everywhere. But if you regularly walk anywhere, or even if you just walk through your neighborhood once, you'll have opinions about the usability, safety, and aesthetics of the varying sidewalks on your route. I live next to a municipal walking trail that feeds into several walking neighborhoods, where the sidewalks can be a hundred years old or brand new. How they treat your feet becomes important when you try to get in a mile or two of exercise. There's a discussion at reddit that goes deep into the factors that make a good sidewalk. -via Digg
