Eye on the Street: Monday, August 8, 2011
It's been a long, hot summer in Chicago. Hot enough that even a winter view of a street in Chicago's Ukrainian Village seems like a nice respite. Today's "Eye" comes from CNU's very own Nora Beck.
"With a heat index of 102 degrees, I'm remembering when my neighborhood street was covered in snow. Here's a shot showing how much narrower my street could be! Look at all that space for a bigger tree area or a wider sidewalk!"
"Eye on the Street" is an ongoing series of user-generated photos and commentary submitted by dedicated New Urbanists like yourself. Ever been walking down a busy, well-developed street and thought to yourself "I am walking through a great pic of urban design!" and wished you could share it? Ever been attempting to cross an six-lane road and thought to yourself "I just wanna cross! I wish I could take a picture and share this insanity with everyone"? Well, "Eye on the Street" is your way to do exactly that. Snap-as-you-go and submit your pics to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
