The city kicked off its Open Street initiative with 1.4 mile stretch of Jamaica Plain's Centre Street on Sunday, and it was a smashing success. The actual event was six hours long from 9 am to 3 pm, but streets were shut down earlier in the morning, and remained closed after the event. During that six-hour span people played chess, danced in the street, and enjoyed food (ironically) from food trucks from Jackson Square to the Monument. Let's kick off the fun with a cartwheel down the double yellow line! We love JP Open Streets!
