Broad Street Recognized

Nice little write-up on the wonderful StreetsBlog featuring the newly-pedestrian-only section of Broad St. downtown.

I remember back in the early 2000’s when the city first started closing it down for “Friday Wind Down”, they would fill the street with tables and chairs and set up a small stage for live music. Nice way to enjoy eats from Reuben’s Deli or a slice from Rosa’s Pizza. They started blocking traffic permantently, then this year deployed some nice street furniture and made it into a little plaza. Nice, slow transition which was certainly sped along by GSU’s persence. Bravo!
