The 16th Street Mall turned thirty yesterday, and the city will be marking the occasion with a celebration at 11:30 a.m. next Tuesday at Skyline park. In the meantime, we headed downtown to do our own mall crawl, and offer stories along the way. Readers contributed their own insights on popular sites/sights on the mall, including people-watching and al fresco dining spots.
But not everyone is a fan...
Favorite things on the mall? Says Joktan:
I can't decide between overeager petitioners and smoke being blown in my face. It's a really tough call.
And some readers say they avoid the 16th Street Mall altogether.
What's your favorite thing about the mall? What's your least favorite thing? And what would you like to see there?
