More Park(ing) Pics: The Art of Sitting in the Street
Members of Community Boards 2 and 4 chat up visitors to their spot on 8th Avenue and 14th Street.
Streetsblog’s Brad Aaron has been roving around Manhattan today, snapping shots of Park(ing) installations. Based on these pics, people are really getting into their seating amenities this year. Check out the roll-able chaise longue lawn chairs at the "Plaza Too Kick Off Ur Shoes" on Hudson Street (Plaza Too is a boutique that sells shoes and handbags).
Folding chairs with leg rests and cupholders at the Time’s Up! spot on Charles Street and 7th Avenue.
What’s inside these boxes at The Open Planning Project’s spot on 8th Avenue and 15th Street? I have no idea, but the stack-your-own-seating strategy is intriguing.
Photos from Brooklyn are on the way. Queens and the Bronx, send those pics to firstname.lastname@example.org, or upload to Flickr with a "streetsblog" tag.
