Penggantian Papan Nama Jl. Malioboro
Kesan pertama kali dari pengantian papan nama Jl. Malioboro adalah, Norak, meskipun berwarna warni namun seolah tanpa makna dan filosofi yang kurang mencerminkan sebagai IKON JOGJA, coba dech lihat bedanya :
Dan ini adalah papan Nama Jalan yang Baru ( foto diambil dari jogjatrip )
coba bandingkan antara keduanya, yang baru memakai sejak 1755, apa maksudnya coba, kayak jualan Jamu saja , dan warnanya menurut aku lebih norak, dan satu lagi KOK BAHASA JAWANYA DIHILANGKAN!!! karepe ki piye??? . banyak yang pro dan kontra, dan silahkan itu monggo saja, tapi menurut pendapatku sendiri PAPAN NAMA LAMA lebih Bermakna dan Njogjani.
Selain itu, jadi ” kawasan Jalan Jalan ” tapi Macetnya minta ampun ( khususnya malam minggu dan dan musim liburan! ) polisi saja menyarankan ” Malam Minggu Jangan ke Malioboro ” Nah Lho! , makanya mesti ada kebijakan khusus untuk wilayah ini, jadikan khusus untuk Pejalan Kaki, ngak boleh ada Mobil maupun Motor yang lewat sepanjang Jln Malioboro, pasti lebih WAH untuk dipakai Jalan2, SEPEDA ya harus tetap boleh lewat ( nambah Becak dan Andong ). Kalau berkenaan dengan penataan Papan Reklame, nah itu baru OK, tapi jangan papan Nama Jalannya DONG!
Malioboro Street) is a major shopping street in Yogyakarta, Indonesia; the name is also used more generally for the neighborhood around the street. It lies north-south axis in the line between Yogyakarta Kraton and Mount Merapi. This is in itself is significant to many of the local population, the north south orientation between the palace and the volcano being of importance.
The street is the centre of Yogyakarta’s largest tourist district surrounded with many hotels and restaurants nearby. Sidewalks on both sides of the street are crowded with small stalls selling a variety of goods. In the evening several open-air streetside restaurants, called lesehan, operate along the street. Less obvious to the tourist, but more for the local population, side streets, lanes and structures that lead on to Malioboro are as important as the street itself.
The street was for many years two-way, but by the 1980s had become one way only, from the railway line (where it starts) to the south – to Beringharjo markets, where it ends. The largest, oldest Dutch era hotel, Hotel Garuda, is located on the street’s northern end, on the eastern side adjacent to the railway line. It has the former Dutch era Prime Minister’s complex, the kepatihan, on the eastern side.
For many years in the 1980s and later, a cigarette advertisement was placed on the first building south of the railway line – or effectively the last building on Malioboro, which advertised Marlboro cigarettes, no doubt appealing to locals and foreigners who would see a pun with name of the street with a foreign product being advertised.
It does not reach the walls or grounds of the Yogyakarta palace, as Malioboro ceases in name adjacent to the very large market Beringharjo (on the eastern side as well). From this point the street changes name to Jalan Ahmad Yani (Ahmad Yani Street) and has the former Governors residence on the western side, and the old Dutch Fort Vredeburg on the eastern side.
