Visions of Vibrancy: Denver's LoDo

The vibrancy of cities comes in all shapes and sizes. Many believe that what works in internationally known cosmopolitan settings may not be applicable for cities in America that have struggled with embracing walkability. If we look hard enough, we may realize that this type of view should be challenged. Despite the diversity around the globe, all lively cities, downtowns, and urban cores have something in common: being pedestrian friendly.

I wish Denver would bring back their diagonal xings for peds at intersections.

Heck, Jacksonville used to have "barndance" pedestrian crossings downtown. If I remember correctly, there were 3 - 2 on Hogan (at Monroe and at Adams), and I don't remember the third.  This was back in the 1970s (I think) when there was still vibrant retail downtown.  Maybe Lake has some pictures?

A barndance at Hogan and Adams back in the 1970s:
