This video by Brooklyn filmmaker Clarence Eckerson, Jr. is a page from Portland 101 that provides ongoing inspiration for the challenges ahead. “Defeat of the Mt. Hood Freeway” outlines the proposal of the heavy hitting Robert Moses and links it up with today’s “ghost ramps.” The rest is history…and Portland’s future for many years to come thanks to an exuberance of innovation and hope. Nice shots of streetscapes and traffic calming devices.
