New, 9 comments

Parklets.jpgWith six parklets in town and possibly 25 more on the way, San Francisco has become the poster child for parklets to other cities like New York, Portland, Seattle, Philadelphia and Chicago considering the option. This article in the NY Times points out they're not all grassy fun and sunshine, noting the pop-up parks are a natural draw for "nudists" and the "mentally ill." Recent parklet scenes include a "disheveled young woman" lunging her hand into a man's container of soup and a jaywalking woman who "flipped, Dick Van Dyke style" over unseen parklet creativity.
