    Catalano Square is one of the City’s better public spaces, for all the reasons listed above. I wish we had 20 more of these great urban pocket parks knitted into the city’s fabric.

    It’s especially thought provoking to see the historic “before” view… Makes you consider all the other streets that may be ripe for this kind of thinking. It’s also compelling evidence for the naysayers that will certainly want to decry efforts that turn streets from simple car-conveyors to people places.

    Too bad there isn’t a cafe still fronting hard-scaped square. It would be wonderful to see tables and chairs routinely lining the space.
