2009 Pittsburgh Parking Day Map
View 2009 Pittsburgh Park(ing) Day in a larger map
The second Pittsburgh Parking Day on September 18th was a relative success. There were a good number of projects spread around and a lot of symbolic support from sponsors and politicians.However, from what I could tell the event still has failed to spark serious publicity about Pittsburgh's antiquated and regressive land use and parking policies. Put on a Green T shirt, take the picture, next event! That's Pittsburgh.
Here are some images taken by Chuck Alcorn , People used their spaces for demonstrations, some as mini parks, a few sold stuff and many handed out literature about parking day and their own organizations. I only managed to see the three spaces on Craig street.
