People talking about greening a city like America didnít spend roughly seventy years bulldozing landmarks to make our urban spaces more palatable to white suburbanites.

Does no one read Jane Jacobs anymore?

Jane Jacobs didn't argue against the existence of urban green spaces, just that they need to match the urban context that surrounds them and meet the recreational needs of the community beyond aesthetics and that an uncritical view of open space is detrimental to communities. I think there's a middle ground between "there should be no green spaces in cities" as someone in this thread argued and aggressively creating urban green spaces without concern for the other land use needs of the community. For example, there's no reason why Muni couldn't incorporate green space and plant life while still continuing to serve it's current use to skateboarders. There are tons of successful parks in places like NYC that have green space where people can lounge and hang out, play games and sports, have their dogs play, and of course serve environmental and climate purposes, while also having concrete areas that people like skateboarders/basketball players/etc. use. The goal is multi-use public spaces and if you're not including green space you're actually cutting off quite a bit of potential use for a space imo.

i donít think you comprehend how much the political arm of philadelphia resents itís citizens.

Philadelphia politics has historically been Democrat politicians who eventually end up behind bars.

The cityís been completely blue since 1960 and has had about 16 politicians from Congress to City Council end up serving prison terms since 1976.

i donít take you for a david oh guy. more of a jeff brown head?

Jeff Brown seemed cool. I liked that he was an outsider, but I didnít know how that would equate to policy.

I actually think Cherelle Parkerís got it and Iím not mad.

David Oh was public enemy #1 for skateboarders in Love Park. He was behind some big anti skateboarding bills downtown.
