National Park(ing) Day 2007

Heading to school on Saturday I came across this:

Someone had turned a parking space into a tiny park, complete with official-looking sign:

I spotted a few other parks along the way, some of them being enjoyed by a variety of bemused people. It was all part of National Park(ing) Day, organized by the Trust for Public Land. Interesting concept, attempting to reclaim the streets for public use (and relaxation) instead of for vehicle storage. It reminded me a little of when a stretch of 3rd Ave. was covered in trees and grass for the filming of Will Smith’s “I Am Legend”.
