How Will You Spend Park(ing) Day?


Tomorrow New Yorkers will lay claim to the city’s most undervalued real estate, unfurling sod and setting up seating, trees and public art for Park(ing) Day 2008. From Transportation Alternatives, here is a sampling of planned spots:

  • Columbus Circle: Curbside break room with grass, communal work tables, internet access
  • 8th Avenue at 15th Street: Tea garden with DIY seating and sculptures, origami folding
  • Cortelyou and Argyle Road, Brooklyn: Kid-friendly lounge in front of Cortelyou Library

This year’s event will feature more than 50 space reclamations. Streetsblog will be out and about tomorrow in Brooklyn and Manhattan. What are your Park(ing) Day plans?
