This plaza is extra sidewalk that stretches along the building’s frontage on the north side of West 53rd Street, the east side of Broadway, and the south side of West 54th Street. At a recent site visit, an open air café fringed with palm trees operated in the space along West 53rd Street, and a small area of table and chairs was established next to the building on Broadway. No record of City approval for such uses has been found.

    All POPS should have signs for us to know that it is accessible to public also the public should be accessible under Park Laws, i.e., eating, drinking, hours of operation, etc. Owners should comply with contracted required compliances. POPS aren’t complying.

    The space is well marked as open for the public
    With a vacant retail lot at the southeastern corner of 1700 Broadway, the plaza at the corner of 53rd and 7th accumulates broken cafe umbrellas, their concrete slabs lay scattered thoughoit, alongside a collection of miscellaneous pipes. The planters in this area contain lifeless trees, scrubs that have yellowed after apparently being left unwatered. An Abandoned wall of vine decays.
    Do the dead trees count towards the 15 required? If one does there are only 14 provided.
