People turned out in their thousands for Berkeley’s second Sunday Streets. There is no doubt that this city likes to go auto-free. Berkeleyside contributing photographer Nancy Rubin was there. (If you haven’t already done so, check out Rubin’s new photo project, Humans of Berkeley and the Bay Area, launched on Berkeleyside last week.)
Update: 11.03.13: This photo essay was updated to remove a photo of young people making hand signals. There is a lot of speculation in the comment section about whether the signals indicated gang signs and in the interest of not accusing anyone, the editors have removed it.
