An interesting article in today's New York Times on ways to make our streets useful for more than traffic. Since cohousers know how to organize, this would seem to be a perfect task for improving neighborhoods. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/14/opinion/sunday/presto-instant-playground.html?src=recg > During a two-month period last year, seven civic coalitions in New York > neighborhoods like East Harlem and the South Bronx got permits from the city > to close certain local streets to traffic for designated periods of time — > say, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on a summer weekday. Working with the police > and other city agencies, they re-designated the areas as temporary “play > streets,” encouraging neighborhood children to use them for exercise and > offering a range of free games, athletic activities and coaching. > > Call them pop-up playgrounds.
