Until now, comprehensive, systematic knowledge about this vast collection of public spaces has not existed, either for experts or members of the public. Through words, photographs, scaled site plans, maps, and analysis of newly assembled data, the book examines the history, law, design, and use of the city's privately owned public spaces. Each of the more than 500 spaces is individually discussed to provide far-reaching comparative information about this unique category of public space.This book covers it all-from sorry examples to brilliant successes. Other cities should learn from this experience.aquot;-Con Howe, Director of Planning, City of Los Angeles
