This week, Forsyth Park in Savannah, GA hosted its annual "Shalom, Y'all" Jewish food festival. What's notable is not the fantastic brisket sandwiches, blintzes or chopped liver, but that festivals of this kind are a routine occurrence in Forsyth. Many cities have festivals, and many cities have nice parks with festivals, but is yours located in such a way that it feeds directly off of the surrounding neighborhoods and downtown? Can thousands of people walk out the doors of their homes, hotels and businesses and attend without extra effort? This is the virtue of quality public spaces, in the right place.
