“By the most significant measures, New York is the greenest community in the United States. The average Manhattanite consumes gasoline at a rate that the country as a whole hasn’t matched since the mid-1920s when the most widely owned car was the Ford Model T.
The average New Yorker (if one takes into consideration all five buroughs of the city) annually generates 7.1 metric tons of greenhouse gasses, less than 30% of the national average which is 24.5 metric tons.
Manhattanites generate even less.” - David Owen

Compact places where walking is the most convenient option. Attached, perhaps smaller, housing. Sufficient density to make shared transportation convenient.
