Pops Problem

Is a POPS closed when it should be open? Are movable chairs missing? You are helping, not squealing, by revealing.

APOPS on 25 Kent Avenue:
Our data comes from New York City's Department of City Planning (DCP). At the moment, this appears to be the case. There are no required amenities. However, the POPS at 25 Kent Avenue also appears to be a new public space. When we get new data from DCP (this happens about once a year), the details about amenities may change.
James Corner on 25 Kent Avenue:
What are the amenities required/provided? It is true that there are "no required" amenities?
Jerold Kayden on 325 Fifth Avenue:
Dear Vanessa, This is truly appalling. The owner is a serial violator. Happily, the Department of Buildings inspected the space on May 27, 2021 and found it in violation. A hearing before the DOB Environmental Control Board is scheduled for September 16, 2021. We will keep our eyes open on this space. Here is info on the violation. http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/ECBQueryByNumberServlet?requestid=5&ecbin=35561237X Please comment on any changes to the space.
Vanessa on 325 Fifth Avenue:
The Public Plaza at 325 Fifth Ave is never ever open. And now, as many officer workers are returning to midtown and public space to eat lunch outdoors is at a premium, this plaza being open to the public is more important than ever. Please remove the locked rolling gates so that the public can access this space.
Julian S. on 130 Liberty Street:
Do more photos exist of the POPS spaces prior to the 9-11 attacks?
