[Image taken 8.12.20.] Exhibition Square, York (2/5). The Square (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exhibition_Square) is a space that could be - should be - a meeting place for people. A sociable area. Yet any character is defined by vehicles. The hire scooters bays; the parked motor vehicles; the cycle racks; in season, the ice cream van; at other times a popup, advertising events; and all too often people in the ASL can't see past the sightseeing buses into the Square. And people in the Square can't see out of it past them. (See also: #160828, #160860, #160862, #165529.) Another space that has become dominated by vehicles is just round the corner: #167118. See also Rougier Street for another city centre space that is seemingly unplanned and is definitely unwelcoming: #164846 Ditto North Street: #170042.
