There are two motorized traffic lanes cutting through the sidewalk at Second and Harrison.  That's right, through the sidewalk, without a stoplight or even a stop sign to protect pedestrians. This seems dangerous, and it is: a pedestrian died here a few years back.  But this public land could serve a higher purpose: dog walking.  This area has had a huge increase in residential population over the last few years, and in San Francisco that means dogs.  We're proposing San Francisco's first BARKlet to meet the neighborhood's pressing need.

Pavement to Barks!
The existing high speed on-ramp through the sidewalk.

It's a good sized plot of public land that could serve a dire need: DOG RUN.
