Matt Green wasn't born in New York City, but he might know it better than many people who were. Seven years ago, Green embarked on a project to walk every block of all five boroughs. His walks are now the subject of a documentary called “The World Before Your Feet.” Locally, Greens' expedition helped inspire runner Rickey Gates to run every street in San Francisco. Green and Gates join Forum to discuss their respective challenges, and the unique, urban beauty they find along the way.
