Streets and sidewalks not only represent essential corridors of commerce and industry, they serve as front yards, playgrounds, and theaters showcasing the expressions of urban life. It lies in the hands of the public to define how they use this wealth of space, but it is the responsibility of city leaders in transportation to stir their minds to imagine all the possibilities.
