In this image we see a "Superblock" and adjoining cul-de-sac units from the Greenhills development. The Superblock was devised for Radburn, New Jersey in the late 1920s. With this concept, all housing faces inward, and surrounds a central green space.

Originally, all pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the green suburbs was to be separated. This would be done using paved foot paths and pedestrian underpasses at major roadway intersections. However, building budgets tightened with various cost overruns. A system of pedestrian underpasses was only built in Greenbelt. The Greenhills and Greendale projects had to settle for guarded crosswalks along their foot path networks.
