Parklet, or people spot, getting a trial run in Andersonville
The People’s Spot in Andersonville is all finished. The parklet on Clark Street in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood will allow people to sit on built in benches and enjoy plantings all around them.
It’s great to finally see a Chicago community coming together to fund an urbanism initiative like this one. Besides major projects like Millennium Park, I find that Chicago is behind in the placemaking movement of pedestrian spaces.
