On September 19th, Loeb Fellow and Streetsblog founder Aaron Naparstek put together a "Streetfilms Movie Night" at Harvard that enticed 130 folks to come meet Streetfilms' Director Clarence Eckerson Jr.  The hour long program featured a myriad of  favorites from over the years including "Revisiting Donald Appleyard's Livable Streets" to "Cycling Copenhagen thru North American Eyes" to  "Clarence the Traffic Calming Sasquatch".

If you couldn't make it, the Q&A following the screening was taped by the Graduate School of Design at Harvard which you can watch at this link.

Big thanks to everyone who came out.  Especially to Sally Young from Harvard University and the group that curated the event: Tilly Hatcher, Nicholas Hornig, Diana Lempel, and Justin Brandon.

Oh, and whomever is responsbile for this really fun poster.
