City Walk continues its spotlight on

walkable neighborhoods in major cities while inspiring viewers to discover

urban areas by foot and re-connecting us with our bodies.

This installment journeys from Boston to Los Angeles, as communities all

across America continue their revolutionary transformation from the streets

back to the sidewalks. The work of legendary landscape architect Frederick Law

Olmsted is explored; his visionary 19th century genius continues to

reshape the city of Boston (and virtually every urban park in the US).

The Pasadena Humane Society's annual Wiggle Waggle Walk introduces us to

Wil Wheaton (
Star Trek: The Next

) and a pack of friendly canines. Then, on the sidewalks of San

Francisco, pedestrians have learned how to beat the traffic and travel in style

on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit System).

Regina M. Benjamin, Surgeon General of the United States hosts a humorous

look at modern conveniences and their surprising consequences.
  And finally - during CicLAvia hundreds of

thousands of people shut down the streets of Los Angeles in a colorful 15-mile

ride from Downtown to Venice Beach to celebrate LA's day without cars. Mayor

Antonio Villaraigosa also explains the importance of Los Angeles becoming a

more greener, safer, and civic-minded city.
