*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Cold Shoulder

-->
In London each weekday morning, in the three-hour period between 07:00 and 10:00, the number of people in the central area of the city swells by 1.3 million ... during an average day, from 12,000 bus stops around the city, travelers make four million journeys on 5,000 buses; while below street level, with its 274 stations, 392km of track, 500 trains and a staff of 16,000, London Underground facilitates some 2.5 million journeys ... Still more people descend out of the sky onto London every day. The airports of Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted welcome between them more than 100 million passengers a year ... equal to twice the population of Britain
