Streetfilms in San Francisco: Making a Better Market Street

1:01 PM EDT on March 16, 2009

Just about everyone who visits San Francisco's grand Market Street
is awed by its hustle and bustle, myriad modes of transportation, and beautiful architecture. But just about
everyone also agrees that Market Street has much bigger potential as a
space that accommodates its users in more efficient and human terms.

Streetfilms was able to talk to many advocates who would like to see
a different configuration of Market Street -- folks who have already
invested in making it better, and passersby who use it as a daily
commuting option. It's fair to say not all ideas are universally
accepted among all stakeholders, but hopefully their thoughts can serve
as a springboard to a bigger discussion on what to do when Market
Street is finally re-examined and re-paved.
