Pocket Parks Publishing
is excited to announce
BEST Pocket Parks of NYC
is available in paperback
in advance of the official
January 15, 2014
This guide to the location and history of pocket parks is the culmination of three years of research to find and document the best pocket parks and public spaces in New York City. There are roughly 530 POPS (privately owned public spaces) on the city's roster with roughly 230 that have seating, but little else. I have chosen 56 of THE BEST spaces that host seating, greenery and amenities such as waterfalls, sculpture or art - things that make them special. Where possible, I have included the history of the space or some interesting tidbit of information about the creation of the space. This is by no means an all-inclusive list, so future revisions are planned.
If you are an adventurous traveler who likes to learn different things about the cities you visit, or a curious local who passes these spaces every day and always wondered about them, please visit Amazon.com and order your copy of BEST Pocket Parks of NYC. Also be on the lookout for future guides to future cities' pocket parks and public green spaces.
NOTE: Kindle version available soon.
Order your copy in advance of the official January 15, 2014 publication date and make note of your favorites. When spring arrives, you will be ready to hit the ground running to see these 'little green spaces in the middle of the city.'
