Where there's white, there's room for GREEN!

Here's a really awesome study on how to determine locations for new green spaces in the concrete jungles!  Analyzing actual space utilized by vehicle traffic in snowy conditions, the writer was able to determine where unused space could become green space.  And who doesn't want more green space?  Since cars don't turn on 90 degree angles...at least not yet, it's a genius proposal worth considering!  It reminds me of Cerda's plan for Barcelona where he created chamfered corners to maximize efficiency for the transportation of his time, the automobile and the tram!
