So what do you think are the benefits of a wider street grid (i.e., 2 or 3 lanes in each direction)?

Philly has wider streets like on 38th Street between Lancaster Ave all the way down to Va Medical Center. JFK Blvd is a wider street. Broad and Market Street too. The main thoroughfares are typically wider.

I prefer narrower streets from a pedestrian standpoint.
