What would you do with this space?

2/18/2010:

Endless possibilities!

Near 14th and Garden nestled between the CVS/NYSC/Chase building and Park on Park – is a sliver of open space that was recently occupied by a sales trailer for the Garden Street Lofts.

With the building nearly fully occupied (I think 5 or 6 units remain) – the trailer was no longer needed and was removed. Not sure exactly who owns this property, but what we have now is a nice spot ripe for…

If I was in charge, I'd:

PS – speaking of Garden Street Lofts – the city council last night didn’t even know where 1500 Garden Street was when discussing a couple tax-refunds. Get to know your city, people!

I think they should build a bridge for the troll here to live under.

A nice little park with a few benches, some of those chess tables and maybe a little fountain.It should be a simple setup, don’t make it a big deal use the KISS[keep it simple stupid] approach and it should be cheap also.

Ah, Avery. Avery, Avery…

I wouldn’t be so sure about what *won’t* in that space. Goodness knows that monstrosity of a Pier, Pier C, shouldn’t have been built, and yet it was. Eons later, the darn thing isn’t finished. But, anyway, the point is that a tiny park may very well go there. Anything may wind up there. Unless you own the space, you don’t call the shots. So make a suggestion for the space, or buzz off.

I LOVE the idea of a Farmer’s Market in the pedestrian path, so far. Nice cobblestone, shade and all. I’d go there all the time.

Ah mooshit…. I agree I don’t call the shots, nor do I own it. Simply stating the fact if you don’t own it you have little input as to what it will become. Why don’t all you park lovers cmbine your pennies, purchase it and move one? Oh..damn it… is it or sale. Guess you’ll have to live with whatever it becomes… God knows farmers markets turn a HUGE profit.
