Park(ing) Day: Tomorrow, Reclaim the Curb

In preparation for Park(ing) Day festivities tomorrow, here’s a flashback to last year. If you’re setting up a spot, or will be hanging out in one or more the 50-plus spaces to be reclaimed for the day, share your photos with us by tagging them "parkingdaynyc" and "streetsblog" on Flickr.

Transportation Alternatives will also unveil the winner of the POP.Park competition on St. Marks Place between First and Second Avenues.

See you at the park, wherever it may be.
