Good Streets, Bad Streets

5th Avenue Looking North


FCR's Proposal for the Area Currently Known as Pacific Street

“A city sidewalk by itself is nothing. It is an abstraction. It means something only in conjunction with the building and other uses that border it…streets and their sidewalks, the main public places of a city, are its most vital organs”.

I enjoyed this entry. I'm a huge fan of green spaces in cities, and I really liked the Jane Jacobs quote.
