Here is the new Argyle. Not totally done but "officially" done enough to call it done or at least open for business although it was never closed for business.
At night (actually the end of twilight, see the dark blue at the end of the street?) from the el looking east:
What you can't see in this night time picture is the paver colors. The sidewalk pavers are darkest and the street pavers are lightest. But there is a third color paver that lies between the two in what one might call the "parking" areas. And some times that third color in on one side of the gutter and some times on the other.
I hope Alderman Osterman urges the cops to apply a light hand at "enforcement" of the rules. Wait what rules? Exactly. Isn't part of the idea here blurred lines. Lets see how thinks evolve here before going all "law and order" on us.
And here's another thing about the blurred lines. A merchant may well decide to start occupying the extra space (is it parking, is it sidewalk?) as if it is sidewalk and load it with tables of wares for sale the cars be damned. A little third-world crazy disorder will certainly add authenticity here. Ok so much of Asia has moved into at least the second world if not the first. Still you know what I mean.
One last thing on the rules. The rules are going to arrive in the form of signs. At the moment the street is clean of signage. It will be interesting to see if they can use the same light ambiguous touch in signage as well.

OK so here are the rain pics:
But first the enforcement picture. Now that didn't take long. Though granted this is for past sins not necessarily for current ones.
