Redesigning The Sidewalk Shed

If you have ever visited New York, You’ve walked under the ubiquitous scaffolding sidewalk sheds. I certainly have.  Ugly as they are, they can be lifesavers if there’s a sudden rainstorm and you don’t have an umbrella. But they can stay up for years sometimes as work goes on slowly or stops altogether for some reason.   Sometimes they seem permanent. Well apparently there is a drive to make them more attractive.

This can’t be anything other than a good idea.
