New York City Parking Squat Day
(From the Transportation Alternatives e-newsletter)
|Be sure to check out this Park Slope parking spot squat video.|
New Yorkers from all five boroughs are organizing NYC Park(ing) Day 2007, a day where citizens trade street space dedicated to private car parking for vibrant public gathering spaces. Park(ing) Day is a fun way to bring attention to New York's need to rebalance streets in favor of uses that maximize the livability and sustainability of our urban habitat.
If you would like to set up a park in your neighborhood or would like to volunteer with a group planning a park, email firstname.lastname@example.org.-------------------
Plus another interesting thing from the e-newsletter is how they have Advocacy Committees for each borough of NYC and they have released a pro-bollard report called Rethinking Bollards, and the City of New York Transportation Department has a monthly e-newsletter for bicyclists
