helms avenue at the helms bakery, culver city

Let's start of the week with a little departure from the norm. Here's a shot of Father's Office at Helms Bakery from a year ago, when Helms Avenue ran straight through the bakery compound. Back then, shoppers squeezed themselves to the margins of the street and had to be ever aware of oncoming traffic. But since then, the Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Initiative has pedestrianized the area, closing the street to traffic and adding wonderful details like a fountain, benches, cobblestone texture, and these awesome solar-powered bollards.

Read the whole list of future developments. Big kudos to Culver City for taking the initiative to make their streets more livable! See it...pedestrianized!
