50 diehard citizens braved the icy cold to convene again and participate in the workshop to redesign 9th Avenue . Seven locations had been chosen because they were either problematic or typical of the avenue. PPS (Project for Public Space), familiarized the groups on how to perform a �place audit� and they were off, each group with questionnaires and open minds. On their return, they presented their findings in words and their designs in drawings. Watch the video.
In typical Hell�s Kitchen fashion, energy and creativity intertwined with strong opinions and flurries of passion: we love our neighborhood and most of us would not choose to live anywhere else. Once again, it became apparent that local residents are the true experts. Only such pragmatic citizens could offer such rich suggestions � based on observation at every time of day or season.
