It's unfortunate that all the lovely pines have been completely chopped down, leaving the street feeling bare. I hope the replacement trees and plants will eventually restore the street's attractiveness, but it'll be a long time before anything grows large enough to replace the shade and greenery of the missing trees.

If the city council of PA and Mtn. View were in charge of a European city, they would pave over the cobble stone streets and tear down the medeival walls just to widen them. They certainly are in the process of butchering San Antonio and what was once a street with at least some aesthetic qualities. Stripped bear, it looks worse than I imagined. I just cant wait for the wide, smooth lanes to be laid down so that people can speed even more than they do now down that stretch of road and all the high tech traffic signals and road markings that will keep traffic speeding along.
