In September of 2009, I somehow convinced my coworkers at The Barbarian Group‘s New York office that we should participate in Park(ing) Day, an annual worldwide event in which people take over individual street parking spaces and turn them into parks. My colleagues decided that, since we were working from the street, we might as well make websites for anyone who wanted one. Someone hacked together a website generator, other folks designed a few templates, and by the end of the day we had made almost 40 “websites”, many for complete strangers.

The archive of TBG Park(ing) Day websites that we made that day can be found at

Streetfilms wrote about Park(ing) Day 2009 and published this video, featuring our office park among many others:
