Two basic rights will be separately discussed in this Comment. First, the public right of user in streets dedicated for public use will be referred to as the "public easement"; and second, the private right of user created by estoppel, hereinafter called the "private easement." Although each is created in a similar manner, each propagates common as well as distinguishable property rights. In connection with the discussion of these easements, some reference will also be made to other analogous easements created by similar theories, for the purpose of furnishing background and comparison.
