- must be a publicly accessible place (i.e. - you don't have to pay to get in, or buy anything to get in)
- preferably outdoor, or largely outdoor
- democratic (not just for the burgis)
- must contribute to making life in our metropolis just a little bit better
This link takes you to the survey.
Taking Sydney's cue, I've divided up the nominees into four categories: 1) Streets, Neighborhoods and Districts, 2) Parks and Plazas, 3) Malls and Markets (with a sub-category of temporary markets), and 4) Buildings and Campuses.
I've reproduced the list below, but please use the survey to register your votes. We're using the very scientific "audience applause" methodology so you can vote for as many places in each category as you please. (Polls close on January 31, 2006)
STREETS, NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS
MARKETS AND MALLS

Thanks to all the nice people who took the time to nominate their favorite places in the city.
