Comment of the Day

"Useless. Better to convert whole rows of street parking to dedicated bike lanes than to convert random ones into miniscule, less-than-useful 'parklets' (god I hate that word). Real green spaces have function and allow many people at once to enjoy them. These? Sorry, but a 'park' the size of a parking space will never be useful or functional for anything except maybe a lemonade stand. Certainly not worth crowdsourcing or using taxpayer money to support." —not everybody's keen on a group of Boston high-schoolers raising money through Kickstarter for a parklet
