Take a look at Masonic Avenue here. What’s the point of having such an uber-wide sidewalk like this?
Couldn’t some of this sidewalk be used for a bike lane or something useful?

[UPDATE: Geez, people, we’re not talking about removing the sidewalks here, but making them a reasonable size. Obviously, some planners a long time ago thought it was a great idea to have Masonic be some kind of grand boulevard or avenue or something. Does anybody want this underpopulated windblown stretch of sidewalk to be even wider? What do you want to do, play volleyball on the sidewalk?]
