San Francisco is putting many of its smaller streets to better use with a people-focus. As you can see from Will’s tweet, San Francisco has some cool lunchtime streets with cafes spilling into the right-of-way. Seattle already has great alleyways being used as public gathering spaces, art corridors, and even as street frontages and space for sidewalk cafes. Perhaps we can find more spaces here in our own backyard and take cues from cities like San Francisco.
Great idea: San Francisco closes smaller streets during lunch rush so smaller restaurants can provide seating. pic.twitter.com/mmnIlpwXNB
