but, like I said earlier, that vibrancy was slowly eroding due to the effects of car-centric planning and one-way streets, even though it still felt 'vibrant' in the 60's and 70's.

Shop owners will tell you it was going downhill at that time, but it takes many years to hit rock bottom, just like it will take many years to become vibrant again.

People have little reason to linger because business owners have little reason to open up shop in an area that isn't enjoyable or conducive to having people linger.
