    “Why would anybody want to do that? Have you ever been down there and seen it’s packed with people?” says Peter G. Furth, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Northeastern University. “People love the energy they get from seeing other people, being with other people. Having a large pedestrian area helps make that possible. If anything, the pedestrian area should be expanded. One of its weaknesses is that it’s a little bit too crowded with people. The number of people walking up and down Winter Street is like an exit from a football game or something. We need more pedestrian areas.”
