Episode 3 of City Walk ventures back in time and across the continent as the walking revolution spreads from New York to Portland to the trails of Orange County.
We witness first hand the pedestrian experience over a century ago on the doublewide sidewalks of old New York, then traverse the present day parks of Manhattan including a visit to a vibrant public space where we're surprised to find out that not every park is green. We meet a new breed of therapist who uses walking to heal the mind and later discover that the road to happiness is best traveled on foot. The rugged canyons of Orange County, California are brought closer to home on a spectacular hike that can't be experienced through the windshield of a car. We walk the streets of Portland and peek in on Portlandia, with former Mayor and current television star Sam Adams.
What do cigarettes and walking have in common? Prepare to be surprised in a unique juxtaposition of 20th century advertising and 21st century medical facts. And finally we spend a little quality time with the Iverson Mall Walkers, an uncommon group of people who will line dance their way into your heart.
