Have you ever passed a small park between buildings and wondered? What's that? Who built it? What's its name?

Pocket parks began in New York City as an answer to providing green space in a tangle of concrete buildings. The first was built around 1965 and they have been springing up ever since. BEST Pocket Parks of NYC will help you find a park near your office, near your apartment, or just learn the name of that park you pass by on your way to work every day.

BEST Pocket Parks of NYC is for the adventurous traveler as well as the local intrigued by the 'little green spaces in the middle of the city.' 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a Terrific Idea! 30. Januar 2014
Von JK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is just packed with little "gems" all over New York City; one of my favorite places on the planet. Having spent a great deal of time there since birth, it was really strange to know that I have walked right by some of these beautiful public spaces, without even realizing they were there! Pocket Parks gives a comprehensive description of each place, and the small but important details that tell you about the space, when and why it was created,and the history of each. It's a fascinating read, and I will be giving copies to two of my friends who are moving to New York. This would be a wonderful gift to anyone, particularly someone new to this vibrant city!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A unique guide for anyone adventuring and relax in a green spot in NYC! 23. Februar 2014
Von Dalila - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Finally a guide that will take anyone into green spaces in New York City for anyone needing to seat and relax, or chat while still enjoying the view in the heart of the city! Although I've been around most amazing areas in NYC, I've never had the chance to notice the small hidden green spots because of the fast city life! It's an excellent book to explore and adventure when visiting the sites. I can't wait until the Summer and begin to explore green spots while enjoying some ice cream and the weather! Thank you Rosemary O'Brien for sharing such an incredible guide!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can't wait for the rest! 10. Februar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is such a great way to know how to explore this big, bustling city at a slower, more calming pace. And the history of these green spaces is so interesting! I can't wait for more books for other cities to be written, and I can imagine Mrs. O'Brien will have such fun writing them. My city also has pocket parks, and a guide including them would be so helpful. Great idea, and great book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I can't wait for my next trip to NYC! 8. Februar 2014
Von C. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have passed some of these public spaces in NYC... years ago when I interned there. I was always pleasantly surprised to find one, was never sure if I was really allowed to be there, and certainly never understood WHY they were there, until now!

What a perfect guide to have with you as you explore all that New York City has to offer. There is bound to be a Pocket Park on the way to your favorite attraction, or around the corner from your office. I look forward to my next trip, and the ability to appreciate these spaces for what they are, and to have an understanding of what brought them to NYC in the first place. Don't plan your trip (or head out to eat your brown bag lunch in the City) without this book!
