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) in Park Slope, Brooklyn, May 6, 2006. The sign says, "Public space reclamation in progress."
