A shout out to our colleague Philip Winn for this parking-to-park animation, starring the OpenPlans Park(ing) Day installation at Crosby and Howard Streets, near Streetsblog headquarters.

If you haven't seen Angie's Capitol Hill post from this afternoon -- featuring curbside parks from Phoenix, Arizona, to Portland, Maine -- don't miss it. And all those photos don't begin to convey the scope of today's festivities. Looking at tweets and media coverage from around the world, it's clear that Park(ing) Day, much like Summer Streets-style events, has hit the mainstream.

Nice job, everyone.
