Reader experience: A third place street

Youngbin Park at Cornell University provides this response to Monday’s blog on our ongoing reader request for what they think is cool – Ithaca Commons, a downtown pedestrian mall that is experiencing a recent revival of vitality after years of neglect:

“It’s similar to a square, but full of independently-owned stores, restauarants, and bars. During the summer time, the Commons host concerts on a weekly basis. The layout of the Common’s is very
nice with plenty of benches, trees, chess tables, and a playground. In the center of the Commons lies Center Ithaca, a mixed-use development with apartments, retail, and a small movie theater in the basement.” Youngbin Park, Cornell University

It may be time for the return of the pedestrian street.

Please let us know what you think is cool!
