You can/can't access it

The button to activate the walk signal at this intersection is hidden and INACCESSIBLE behind the fence that's required to seaparate parking lots from the sidewalk. Notice how this sidewalk has ZERO pedestrian access to the parking lot. I guess the developers and the people who approved the design thought that everyone would come in a car.

 

In Chicago, we still rubber stamp strip malls that disrupt neighborhoods and the urban environment.
