Narrowing Streets - Creating a Different Urban Reality
This blog is based upon a simple idea. What if the streets of L.A. weren’t so wide? How would that look, what would the place feel like, would it be different? The photographer goes out to streets people recommend could look good without so many lanes, and then shoots and photoshops. With amazing results. Check out this map of all the streets that have been narrowed: http://www.davidyoon.com/

The resulting narrowed streets create such a radically different feel than the wider existing streets. I certainly found it illuminating just how much impact street width has on the feel of the street.
