Taking a journey back in time to the “Age of the Push Button”, Steve Blair of the University of South Carolina and former Surgeon General of the United States Regina M. Benjamin discuss how modern technologies like elevators and escalators have a negative impact on walking and exercise.

City Walk is a unique six-part series that reveals the way walking is transforming cities across America, and in the process, re-connecting us to our bodies, our civic values and public space.
As the show explores the walkability of these communities, viewers will learn about American history by exploring culturally rich neighborhoods, stunning architecture, monuments and beautiful parks that have helped define the character of each city.
