A quick Flickr search for “Park(ing) Day 2011” this afternoon turned up this excellent rug-based parking spot reclamation all the way down under in Adelaide, Australia. So far, nothing from NYC, arguably the birthplace of the Park(ing) Day concept (though the San Francisco partisans will have something to say about that).

C’mon, New York, show us how you’re reclaiming the curb. Upload your Park(ing) Day pics to Flickr and tag them “Streetsblog” — or just email them to tips@streetsblog.org. Here’s the handy map showing all 34 Park(ing) locations around the city. We’ll post the best photos we receive later today.

The folks at HR&A Advisors set up an outdoor office in their Columbus Circle Park(ing) spot, complete with wi-fi and business attire. It may not have had sod, but this spot on Broadway and 74th Street got a lot of attention from curious passersby. Maybe in part because of the great snacks. (Thanks again for […]

Park(ing) Day, After the Storm

On a day when street trees all over Brooklyn and Queens have been ripped out of their pits, shorn of their limbs, or cracked in two, “Alternate Side Mulching is in Effect Today!” seems like the right choice to kick off our Park(ing) Day photographic coverage.

  I was pretty sure that New York City had San Francisco beat for this year’s Park(ing) Day, what, with the children’s reading hour and the on-street gymnasium in Brooklyn; Staten Island and Queens getting in on the act; and German tourists frolicking on the sod in front of the MoMA (all captured by StreetFilms, […]
