Pedestrian Impressions 2: Walking Downtown
A couple of weeks back, I had a meeting in the Metro Building two hours after a meeting in the Downtown Library. I decided to walk to the Metro HQ and back. The route was roughly this, but I took off down side streets a lot. Following the map is another photo essay…

Never let anyone tell you that nobody takes transit. In this picture, a crowd squeezes through the tube to start their trip home after work.
Is there a bigger waste of land resources than at street parking? Literally acres of downtown are eaten up with what could be accomplished with a few large parking garages. Thing of what this view of the downtown skyline could be from a park.
What a beautiful side of a wall this is! I would say the majority of the walk was next to walls.
