"A Holiday for City Planners"

"The idea is simple: Kids, and the parents who chaperone them, have a way of sussing out good urban design. On Halloween, they'll flock to places where cars drive slowly, streets are well-lit, houses are close together, and front doors are close to the street. If there's a holiday for city planners, the planner Brent Toderian has argued, Halloween is it."

Henry Grabar at Slate discusses the "trick-or-treat test" for walkable neighborhoods.
