A Better Market Street?

Better Market Steeet Keep Tryin

The Planning Department is preparing the required environmental review for the forthcoming proposals related to improving Market Street into something hopefully the city can be proud of. The Better Market Street initiatives seek to enhance mobility ad reduce conflicts along Market Street, primarily by restricting private vehicle access, which is supported by the city’s long-standing Transit First Policy. Physical upgrades will likely entail new pavers and pedestrian amenities as part of a refreshed urban design concept for the city’s most important civic thoroughfare. It’s been busted for so long, I’d argue that some public investment and some urban love can only do Market Street, particularly its maligned mid-section a world of good.

Bridging My Own Digital Divide

I recently had a birthday and received as a gift a negative scanner. It was only in 2005 or so that I started using a digital camera in earnest. Before that time I was taking pictures with either my Nikon or trusty Pentax K1000. It’s exciting to go through boxes of old negatives to slowly digitize years worth of memories. These are a few of the first images I took and developed in my sophomore year in high school.

Most are in Niles and Sunol, on the outskirts of Fremont, CA but some are also from my early travels in Europe.
