Is there a sign anywhere inside or outside the building stating that the through block arcade is for public use? I would like use it to strengthen my argument if next time I am intervened by their staff.
APOPS on 401 West 31st Street:
The data you see for each POP (numbers of chairs, plantings, etc) is updated about annually. The descriptions in the body of the pages are from the book "Privately Owned Public Space: The New York City Experience" by Jerold Kayden. This book was published in 2000 so it's likely some of the information has changed since then.
