Its about coloring our city "HUMAN" with space and color for humans to thrive.

This panorama was captured in the morning of Sep 19th on Larchmont Avenue in Los Angeles CA, I was told there were about 60 other locations set up around the city.

History - clipped from the New York about page.
On October 29th, 2005, Transportation Alternatives took over a parking spot on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Using basic materials, they created their first "parking spot squat", offering free bike parking and a place to sit and talk to friends and strangers alike. It was an immediate success, drawing crowds and attention from the press. Most importantly, it got people thinking about whether $.50 an hour was a fair price for such a useful piece of public space, and whether that space should be occupied by cars at all.

Today Park-ing day is a worldwide event. creating green spots in hundreds of cities around the world.
