Why These Two Men Are Walking Every Block in the City

In this video from The New Yorker, author William Helmreich of [The New York Nobody Knows: Walking 6,000 Miles in the City](http://www.amazon.com/New-York-Nobody-Knows-Walking/dp/0691144052/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=%29%2C&tag=viewingnyc-20 and professional walker Matt Green of I'm Just Walking explain why they are walking each and every block in the City.

New York City has over 6,000 miles of streets across five boroughs. William Helmreich and Matt Green plan to walk every last block. Though they are doing the same thing, Helmreich and Green have vastly different approaches and reasons for embarking on the journey. In this video, the two men meet for the first time and discuss their philosophies on walking. They ultimately question how—and if—New Yorkers can truly know their city.
