Feature: Living Longer, Walking Stronger: The Design Needs of Senior Pedestrians

Ina Evans demurs when asked to reveal her age, saying vaguely that it's "over 70." She has lived long enough to have had a successful magazine career in New York and to be the grandmother of two teenagers in Chapel Hill, N.C. where she now makes her home. Mrs. Evans remembers a time when Seventeen magazine wouldn't utter the word "s-e-x" in its pages- during the 1940s and 50s when she was a staffer there. She also remembers a time when walking across the street to the grocery store didn't entail risking her life.
