The Intersections series is produced by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, a business improvement district (BID); this edition focuses on Flatiron-centric books and is created in collaboration with Rizzoli Bookstore.

Janette Sadik-Khan is one of the world’s foremost authorities on transportation and urban transformation. She served as New York City’s transportation commissioner from 2007 to 2013 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, overseeing historic changes to the city’s streets—closing Broadway to cars in Times Square, building nearly 400 miles of bike lanes and creating more than 60 plazas citywide. A founding principal with Bloomberg Associates, she works with mayors around the world to reimagine and redesign their cities. She chairs the National Association of Transportation Officials, implementing new, people-focused street design standards, which have been adopted in 40 cities across the continent. She lives in New York City.

In Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, which she wrote with Seth Solomonow, she demonstrates how to rewrite the underlying “source code” of a street, with pointers on how to add protected bike paths, improve crosswalk space, and provide visual cues to reduce speeding. Streetfight pulls back the curtain on the battles Sadik-Khan won to make her approach work. To learn more about the book, click here.
