London has.
Temporarily. But it’s a start. I wish they would never sod off.
The idea should grow, like crabgrass.
The Beeb has more.

More here. I want one.

And I’ll wear my helmet.

London wants to do it.

I think more cities should.

Chicago should do it between Millennium Park
and the new Art Institute wing.

Do watch the video on this page.

“Open up squares! Create new spaces! … Places where people can talk and think.”

Go Stanley! Go Helmut!

Nonprofit housing.

Here’s that story I told you was coming from the New York Times.

Money graf:

“Chicago has the most vibrant nonprofit housing community in the country,” said Henry G. Cisneros, the former housing secretary during the Clinton administration and a prominent advocate of affordable housing. “If you want to talk about a city with a comprehensive approach to housing and ending homelessness, Chicago kind of sets the pace right now.”

The projects also showcase what is turning into another tradition in the city, that of sustainable, or green, design.
