On public space

Friday, May 29, 2020

Speaking about vertical video: This NY Times feature about street skating in New York City during the lockdown really resonated with me:

When you take an avenue, in the center of it, and there are no cars, and you can even see the end of the avenue, and it is so long and big — and you just feel like, Wow, I am floating.

The quotes from these skaters should be required reading for anyone trying to understand the concept of public space.
