It'll be nice to have you in our city, although I'm afraid that the weather isn't as welcoming. On a side note, perhaps you could visit Justin Herman Plaza for an example of a connection-activated civic square.

The Justin Herman Plaza / Ferry Plaza / Ferry Building area in San Francisco is a major destination and interchange area, although the three are separated by one-way sections of a major avenue (The Embarcadero). Firstly, the Ferry Building is an upscale shopping center, and is where most commuter ferries from other areas of the Bay Area wind up. The Ferry Plaza is across the avenue (across two lanes of it, actually), with a historic streetcar station. Across another two lanes of the Embarcadero is Justin Herman plaza (complete with an open-air market), with a major local bus terminal (4 lines plus one peak-period express) on the other side of it. A minute away is Embarcadero Station, the easternmost underground rapid transit station in San Francisco--making it a major connection point for transit users. A cable car terminal is also located there. Of course, it's not suburban, but I could imagine it being used in a suburban context. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=justin+herman+plaza+on+market+street&layer=c&sll=37.794932,-122.394905&cid=13122685780295372461&cbp=13,58.27,,0,1.31&cbll=37.795021,-122.394375&hl=en&ie=UTF8&hq=justin+herman+plaza+on+market+street&hnear=&ll=37.795127,-122.394454&spn=0.005256,0.013078&z=17&iwloc=A&panoid=lIOplgh4bsypEwnN9jVKMw http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&q=stuart+and+market&aq=&sll=37.794686,-122.393736&sspn=0.005468,0.013078&ie=UTF8&rq=1&ev=p&radius=0.43&split=1&filter=0&hq=stuart+and+market&hnear=&ll=37.79444,-122.394669&spn=0.005468,0.013078&z=17&layer=c&cbll=37.79437,-122.394594&panoid=k8Umx5htNhmvSgWqPa-XMw&cbp=12,74.82,,0,-3.12
