Letter: Now is the time pedestrianize the streets of Brown

To the Editor: The Feb. 14 column by Gabriel Sender ’25 calling for the pedestrianization of Brown and Thayer streets is an ambitious and important proposal from a number of perspectives. The elimination of personal vehicles in and around campus is an idea that has been bandied about for ...
