NOPA Streets As Never Seen Before

Early morning for Central Avenue looking toward the Panhandle

Sunday Streets came to the North Panhandle today for thousands of people to walk, skate, bike, visit, lounge, play and listen to live music. They romped on car-free streets, eleven full blocks open to whatever else people wanted to do on them. Anything but drive and park for five hours on a Sunday. Before the staging for activities got underway, I took a look at our neighborhood streets opened in a new way on a relaxed and quiet morning.


  1. It was a slight bit intense when Sunday Streets was over, and the cars invaded the parking spots.

  2. Rubin110: look for an upcoming story about how NOPA handled the parking situation for Sunday Streets blocks, and how many neighbors used the alternative free parking.
