Jaywalking is a right. It is an expression of will. It is an assertion to the system that, no, we will not stand idly by on the corner when we know full well that it safe to cross the street on our own volition. Fuck your flashing hand, man. Fuck it.
While your pedestrian habits did baffle me at the time, this was largely meant to be taken as a joke. But the response I received was pretty strong particularly from others who recently moved here from out east. Here one sample, from a guy named Chris (who gave me permission to print his letter in the paper so I assuming I can reprint a bit here):
If you recall, I wrote a sidebar back in February to accompany David Watts Barton cover story about Sacramentans who had moved to New York City. As a recent transplant to Sacramento from Brooklyn, I took it upon myself to write a funny little perspective piece on the differences between the two cities. Here how it began:
Just this morning, while running to catch the light rail, I reached the cross street for K and 12th. I had the red hand signal but, as I always do when no other vehicles are passing through the intersection, I crossed.
It just all those ideas are big Nike Shoes Collection Tumblr

Other Sactown thoughts on what the new downtown arena needs in include a or high rise hotel, a multimillion dollar public art sculpture by Claes Oldenburg (like this?), brightly lit icons to help define the skyline of the city and give it a recognizable sense of place on the national stage, and big, tall luxury condos.
Here We Stay, in a letter to Vivek last month, also asked for a skyline lounge to hang out at after games.
On the west side of 12th, two state workers who had been waiting for the walk signal watched me enter the intersection. They looked at each other. And then back at me. And then they too crossed the street. This made me cackle with glee.
OK. Maybe I don have my pulse on what gets a Sacramentans jones going, but I can assure you this: Grid dwellers eat ultra lounges for breakfast, whether on K and 20th streets or on top of a damn skyscraper above an arena. No go.
Okay. I get it. The cops are assholes about it in Sacramento. But I taking it upon myself to fight the muthafuckin man on this one. And I hope you do, too.
As someone that moved to Sacramento from NYC this past Labor Day weekend, I very much enjoyed your article, to 916." Your opening line, are you Nike Shoes Skateboard
all so afraid of jaywalking, was hammer to the head of the nail dead on accurate. What are they doing? I guess everyone around here has a lot of time to waste. I find it especially odd considering that as I walk around Midtown a term that has taken on a completely different meaning since moving here nearly every time I step off a curb to wait for the traffic to pass . . . it stops. That still boggles my mind.
One idea (not exclusive to Nike Shoes Light Blue Sactown) is that a new arena needs a tower with an Nike Shoes Low Cut 2017
I am pretty much scarred for life because my friend crossed while the flashing hand was counting down (while I waited) at an intersection a couple years back in downtown Sacramento and she ended up getting a bullshit ticket.
ticket, haves and have not visions. And the new arena should be something everyone can enjoy, not a 916 baller status fantasy dropped into the middle of K Street.
Finally. Someone who understands me.
Soon, my piece made its way to Reddit, where locals gave me some insight on how and why things work out here the way they do. As user evergreenminty put it:
Or maybe I just need Google glasses, because my Think Big vision isn working.
And to the jaywalker on 7th and Capitol Mall: Godspeed, my flight footed friend. I have a lot of respect for the team of journalists over there, but some of these ideas for what the arena needs are both starry eyed and stale.
Officers observed a subject jaywalking and attempted to make contact. The subject immediately fled and the unknown subject was not able to be located after a search of a perimeter was done.
I hope you join me in celebration.

So when you find yourself reading Sacramento police reports that end as such:
ultra lounge on the top.
I think Sactown heart is in the right place. The arena shouldn be a hole and it should have things we can enjoy 365 days a year. Plus housing and public art investments are crucial.
Honestly. It a light. You know that, right? You humans. Sentient beings. You can just cross whenever. Use your judgment. I sure as hell won stop you.
I recently moved from Sacramento to NYC and the amount of ridicule receive for waiting at crosswalks is astronomical and something people rib me about constantly. I showed a friend this article and they nearly died laughing.
Why are you all so afraid of jaywalking?
Sactown envisions one that rises 100 feet above street level, with a vodka bar atop. It not far fetched; as co editor Rob Turner writes, there is a One80 Grey Goose rooftop ultra lounge at the recently opened Amway Center arena in Orlando.
