new york public space: taking the pedestrian point of view

a short article that caught my eye in the Toronto Star today.

highlights: the speed at which this is possible, the small/irregular space being reused, the possibilities in other cities for similar projects, the necessity of good leadership, the power of strategically placed leadership with sufficient power to do what they need to do, the difference of experiencing cities from cars and from the street, the parking along the left side of the triangle that was incorporated.
