Shared streets

A post at the Auckland Transport blog on the shared streets and people-friendly spaces in urban planning got me inspired to look at how the streets rated the most expensive in various editions of the board game Monopoly look like in real life.

Here's the Nieuwstraat in Brussels:

And here is the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam:

Normalmstorg in Sweden:

And a stunning looking Paseo Del Prada in Madrid:

And here is Queen Street in Auckland (you have my permission to weep):

And just imagine what Queen Street could look like if it was redeveloped like the Meir in Antwerpen:
