The focus of this study is to analyze a sidewalk as a pedestrian path, not only as a means to reach or return from a destination, but also produce activities as a self-reinforcing process at a certain time. These activities are certainly triggered by the presence of various users and their perceptions based on the sidewalk context. The phenomenon can be seen along the sidewalk in Jalan Jatibaru Raya Tanah Abang, Jakarta, Indonesia. Its function as transit and the commercial area certainly influences the activities in the sidewalk. Thus, walking is not the only activity on the sidewalk. People do selling, buying, or waiting there. The methodology of this study is a detailed observation of the physical environment as the main factor of human gatherers. Then, pedestrians become the primary reference for other actors to come and do activities on the sidewalk of Jalan Jatibaru Raya, Tanah Abang, Jakarta, Indonesia. The observation is using ANT (Actor-Network Theory) as a basis for developing the phenomenon. The result showed that the process of a self-reinforcing process in the sidewalk happens when someone starts doing something, allowing a clear tendency for others to join, either participating or merely experience or see what others do. However, the interconnection between the actors is inseparable from activity, space, and time.
