RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS
Third Place n. A social space separate from work and home
I started by identifying popular/busy intersections and bus stops and drew a 3-block radius, a 5 minute walk, from those points. I found potential opportunities for Third Places along the intersection of these zones.
Maps compare and contrast Sanborn maps to Google maps images from present day. Highlighted in green are places I have identified as third places. What I have found is that Washington Park is more dense as it exists today, however, there are far fewer social spaces available.
