In other cases where you cannot extend green time to accommodate everyone, you can build pedestrian overpasses.

Okay, I have to parse this out now.

It is always *possible* to extend green time. So I have to assume that you cannot always extend green time *to accommodate everyone*. But since extending green time always accommodates pedestrians, I have to assume that you mean that sometimes you cannot extend green time without inconveniencing automobile drivers.

So this turns out to be one more instance of your view that the automobile is primary and every other kind of traffic must be subservient to the automobile.

Next to Washington DC, NYC has the greatest trip lengths in the country.

In *time*, yes. The linked article says nothing about distance. (PS NYC is actually first and DC second, per the linked article, but that's a minor point.)
