A street parking space that is converted for pedestrian use to expand the pedestrian realm. May be used for formal dining, or informal public seating. Often generates a greater economic return for neighboring businesses because more businesses can use the same space than a few parked cars. The pedlet is a variation, invented by William “Holly” Whyte that redirects pedestrian traffic from the sidewalk into the street to allow for other uses of the sidewalk such as for cafes and outdoor dining.
