Towns have their rythms. In Zaragoza that I live even labour days streets and parks are (except on maybe seasonal holidays) even too crowded. In spite of this when night comes you can walk unencumbered.

I think that given a concentration of people, and of course with some need for going out, be it to give a walk with the children, or some pet, they will go out as long circumnstances permit, say, climate and safety against aggression.

I also need to agree in lack of self sufficiency being a factor, for many times seated people has nowhere better go at the time. I see it every weekend when I visit my aunts in a popular quarter, the square (what a name for a triangular plan that it has!) is full of elders obviously there better than elsewhere, or so they must think.

I once counted people in the streets in relation with a essay on local bioclimatics ... the number took a vague yet real relationship with good weather, what is not surprising at all.

So I think most of the factors named by other contributors have some weight.
