People Parking

Great post in Inhabitat. These are some really cool temporary parks in San Francisco. I am all for adding green to a street.

However the other element to think about is how did we find it acceptable to live without the green public space? How did cars get such primacy over people in the first place? Streets are city space and owned by all of us, Jan Gehl in Cities for People shows a better way to use this space, and how is we design streetscapes for people not cars we get more lively and livable cities
