    Imagine if highways were rivers. Well, in Seoul, you wouldn’t have to imagine too hard. One of the city’s busiest highways has been transformed into a beautiful river, and it has made the city more liveable in the process.

    Rates of Travel 1800

    by Allan R. Pred, Urban Growth and the Circulation of Information, 1790-1840-

    The map shows travel times to various parts of the country in the first part of the 19th century. All travel times start in New York City and accordingly, a trip from New York to the Georgia/Florida state line would have taken two weeks and then another week to reach the Gulf coast.

    I always wonder about this.
