Video Interlude

"Parking craters," according to Streetsblog USA, are "depressions in the middle of an urban area formed by the absence of buildings." If that's the case, Downtown Atlanta could reasonably be mistaken for the moon. The six-minute video "Parking Craters: Scourge of American Downtowns" from StreetFilms examines how parking craters affect urban centers in America, reducing walkability, eliminating green space and generally bringing the whole city down. The video shows fascinating photos of cities before and after surface lots spread across their downtown areas. One thing is certain: Atlanta is not alone in this struggle. [StreetFilms]
