Taking to the streets

Though the second Sunday Streets event to close off a portion of The Embarcadero went off without a hitch this weekend, don’t expect another such event in the near future.

While calling the initiative a success, the Mayor’s Office has yet to apply for the permits needed to put on the event again. The Board of Supervisors, along with several Fisherman’s Wharf businesses, has called on Mayor Gavin Newsom to measure the economic impact of closing down some of The City’s major traffic corridors before shutting down the stretch to traffic again.

Sunday Streets took place on a 4.6-mile stretch of The Embarcadero connecting Bayview-Hunters Point with Chinatown.

First proposed by Newsom, Sunday Streets encourages healthy living by allowing people freely to walk, jog, bike or exercise in a space normally reserved for cars.
