The fifth annual PARK(ing) Day was last Friday, and promised to be the biggest and best one yet, but we wanted to get out and see for ourselves. TreeHugger previously looked at how previous years stacked up, so to speak, but how would this year's compare?

Intrepid TreeHuggers in San Francisco, where it all started, and New York City, set out to have a look and see how PARK(ing) Day worked in their cities. First up -- Jaymi Heimbuch, in the city where it all began: San Francisco.
