On Sunday I took a couple of hours to explore the fairly new Jerusalem light rail. It opened in late 2011 and when I was last here in 2009 it was still under construction. I'm staying near Damascus Gate, and there is a station right across the road. There is only one line so far (more are planned) which runs from Mount Herzl in the west to Heil Ha'Avir (Air Force Street) in the north east.

"The phenomenological approach to space and the lived body reveals the two to be inseparable." - Félix Guattari, "Space and Corporeity"

The San Francisco Parklet Manual is a comprehensive overview of the goals, policies, process, procedures and guidelines for creating a parklet in San Francisco. The Manual also serves as a resource for those outside of San Francisco working to establish parklet programs in their own cities.
Applicants and designers in San Francisco are strongly encouraged to read the Parklet Manual in its entirety when they are first thinking about proposing a parklet, and to refer to it often throughout the process.
