It’s getting harder to find a place in the Metro to sit or catch your breath, without paying. There may be open green spaces in a few areas but not a bench or seat in these. Many times, leg-tired from walking in heels, I was forced to go into cafes just to sit but it meant I had to buy something. This meant business for them and unexpected spending on my part – the price of getting some rest while in transit. But as Whyte’s research shows not every one gravitates toward using the public space.
