Links from the 21st century — and the 19th

Three great links of interest that have absolutely nothing to do with each other:

  • Death by bad urban design: “When an area is designed with only car travel in mind, it puts the pedestrian at a severe disadvantage. Sometimes that disadvantage is fatal.”
  • MapMyRun.com: “Find your Address in the ‘BEGIN HERE’ box … then click on the map below to plot your walk.” A great tool for figuring out new ways to explore your neighborhood.
  • 1876 map of Fort Wayne: Extra cool map of 19th century Fort Wayne. Shows the old Wabash & Erie Canal and the old Allen County Fairgrounds (where Swinney Park is now).
