A real San Francisco day: fog and sun, depending where you went. Warm but foggy along the coast for the Great Highway car-free experience and sunny and warm at the east end of JFK Drive for car-free park strolls. Today was the last Sunday Streets of 2009 with a promise, by the Mayor, of more to come next summer.
Perhaps we won't wait till 2010. There's a buzz about San Franciscans using public space differently. The Divisadero Art Walk organizers imagine taking the Walk into the street next time out. The city is transforming four blocks around town into mini-parks. Neighbors are planning different uses for streets, and permeable sidewalks seem to be multiplying. Change is in the foggy, warm, sometimes sunny air.
