Where Shops and Parks Meet

I found the Opinion page column "Savoring the Cityscape - Then and Now," June 3, very interesting. However, there is at least one notable exception to the statement that "Would-be shopping streets facing parks tend not to work..." - Princes Street, Edinburgh.

With shops on one side and gardens on the other, both can be better enjoyed. The architecture can be seen from a suitable distance, often not possible with buildings on both sides. Princes Street certainly does work, and would be even better if it were possible to restrict it to pedestrians only. John Nicholson, Leeds, England
