Thanks. Yeah, I've heard that before about the fire station, but I haven't seen a good explanation why that is actually a problem. It looks like you could have 10 feet on each side of the street for café space, and leave a 30+ foot wide path down the middle for pedestrians and emergency vehicles. If a firetruck needs to come through, pedestrians get out of the way. Just like cars do now, except the pedestrians can get out of the way faster than gridlocked cars.The killer is the fire station at 392 Hanover, Boston Fire Department Engine 8 Ladder 1.
What am I missing here?
