Photos: Street off Hollywood Blvd. Transformed into a Pedestrian Plaza
The good people from the Hollywood Community Studio took today's Park[ing] Day concept to new heights. Instead of taking over a parking space and transforming it into a park, they took a whole street and made it into a pedestrian plaza of sorts. Tables, chalk, board games and benches made up 200 feet of Hudson Street just off busy tourist-heavy Hollywood Boulevard (map).
The project hopes to demonstrate what other cities have made permanent, such as on Broadway in Times Square and Market Street in San Francisco. Could Los Angeles see streets like this? Maybe. There's talk at city hall to create such a process.
