Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Park and Shop ad, Washington Star, 4/10/1968

Park and Shop ad, Washington Star, 4/10/1968
Thanks to The Brightwoodian for the scan.

I have mentioned that in the past, many downtowns, including DC's, had shared parking programs marketing short term parking to support retail shopping. This is another ad I came across after I scored a couple of post-riot Washington Stars at an estate sale. (Sadly, in the morass of the attic, I couldn't find the papers from April 6th, 7th, and 8th. One of those issues, the front page photos are all of H Street NE.)
