Streetfilms: Making a Better Market Street

1:59 PM PDT on March 13, 2009

About a month and a half ago San Francisco Streetsblog opened its doors and any Angeleno who is interested has been able to take a closer look at the Livable Streets Movement in San Francisco.  Thanks to Streetfilms, we can take a look at one of the signature issues for San Francisco: designing a new Market Street.  Clarence Eckerson Jr. reports:

Just about everyone who visits San Francisco's grand Market Streetis awed by its hustle and bustle, the myriad modes of transportation,and some of the beautiful architecture the city hosts. But just abouteveryone also agrees that Market Street has a much bigger potential asa people space that accommodates its users in more efficient and humanterms.

Streetfilms was able to talk to many advocates who would like to seea different configuration on Market Street, people who have investedtime in making it better, and thoughts from those who use it almostdaily as a commuting option.
