There are over 520 privately owned public space (POPS) in New York City, but many are simply widened sidewalks or empty plazas. BEST Pocket Parks of NYC takes the best of these spaces, those with seating and ambience, and compiles them into a guide with interesting bits of information scrounged from databases, articles and all manner of public documents. "The information is in various places and can be difficult to find," according to the author. "I have visited every park, researched from a variety of sources, and come up with a guide to those pocket parks and public spaces that lend themselves to stopping and relaxing for a while before you go on with your day." BEST Pocket Parks of NYC is the first of several guides planned that will give the reader interesting information and history along with the location of pocket parks and public spaces in several U.S. cities as well as locations in Europe.
