Streetfilms: PARK(ing) Day 2007 NYC (en español)

The geniuses at Streetfilms have begun taking some of their films and translating them to Spanish.  As we rapidly approach Parking Day both here and in New York, it makes sense that the fist film to be translated is their film on last year’s Parking Day NYC.  For more information on Parking Day LA, click here.  For more information on Streetfilms en español, read on:

Park(ing) Day fue un gran éxito en la ciudad de Nueva York el año
pasado. Se convirtieron muchos espacios de estacionamiento en espacios
verdes para la gente. Se acerca Park(ing)Day 2008, viernes, el 19 de
septiembre ocuparemos 50 espacios en los 5 condados de la ciudad.

  • This is really a fantastic project. Taking back the public spaces for the people leads to more interactions between neighbors, and all people in the city. It’s a great concept (and a great video). I’m excited for this in LA!
