The neighborhood of Silver Lake is getting Los Angeles' first experimental pedestrian plaza as part of a pilot program that draws inspiration from San Francisco and New York. It will be called "Sunset Triangle Plaza" and is adjacent to where a twice-weekly farmer's market takes place.
As reported by laist, the concept was first developed by community members in 2006 and is being brought into fruition by Streets For People (S4P). The plaza, as shown above, will feature green polka dot painted asphalt and large planters.
