Privately Owned Public Space - New York Map
« on: November 08, 2019, 08:45:54 AM »
Through today's New York Time's article on Hostile Architecture (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/08/nyregion/hostile-architecture-nyc.html?action=click&module=News&pgtype=Homepage) I came to this website that maps out all of the POPS (Privately Owned Public Space) in New York. With photos.
While certainly not made for skateboarders, I can imagine this could serve as a starting point for a catalog of NYC Plazas.

Good read, I love how American ‘privately owned public space’ sounds too.

Land of the free

In all seriousness though, great read. I always appreciate someone who can articulate the hypocrisy of American public space usage
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes
