17th Street Plaza's First Sunday
17th Street Plaza from Castro to Noe
May 9-10, 2009

After Sunday Streets, Kate called Orphan Andy's to ask about the status of the 17th Street Plaza. Greg and I had gone the previous day and only seen the signs but no change in street configuration. Michael at Orphan Andy's told us there was yellow paint, so we headed west to check it out.

It was very yellow indeed! We parked our bikes against the police barricades and ended up explaining the plaza and the project's motivation to many puzzled passers by, including police. We sat down in a hippie circle to critique the yellow color, enjoy the sun, and get a head start on the reclamation of public space. We passed the camera around, so thanks to the other transit nerds for some of the shots.
