Where in the City is this?

Every so often I find little gems of street planning that I would love to see replicated elsewhere in the city. For instance, the other night I walked past this side street with bump outs at the crosswalk that give pedestrians more space and prevent automobiles from cutting corners too sharply.

Can any name where in the city this is? Bonus points if anyone knows any history on why this street is so unlike anything near it.
