Active Design: Shaping the Sidewalk Experience - New York City Department of City Planning The Department of City Planning has produced the two-part publication Active Design: Shaping the Sidewalk Experience and its supplement, Shaping the Sidewalk Experience: Tools and Resources as a study focused on the critical public space network –sidewalks. The documents present the work not from the perspective of those who drive past sidewalks or of those who construct them, but of those who actually use them. It is the point of view of the pedestrian—the person inhabiting and experiencing the sidewalk—that has been prioritized.

Sidewalk spaces typically fall within the legal jurisdiction of transportation agencies, and are discussed primarily in terms of their ground plane.
