About once a year, I grab a sandwich at Stars and walk to University park to eat. Even on the nicest of days, this prime location draws only a smattering of people. I find this amazing, because it is such an attractive public space. I believe it would be a fine location for street vendors. If this square was in Europe, it would be packed with people selling food. I’m not talking about hot dogs, but higher quality snacks such as fresh bread or kabobs. There might also be diversions such as a life-sized chess board or street performers. When we think about ways to improve our city, it is easy to miss the fact that a few minor changes in areas that are already “nice” could make a major impact.
