So, here's the Future World vision of 42nd Street as a pedestrian mall with a light rail line, which you may have already read about, but the color renderings are cool. It's from Vision 42, which has gotten a boat load of publicity for its proposal to make 42nd Street a "pedestrian and light-rail zone." They say it would be worth $380 million a year in extra business. A couple of more renderings after the jump.
