    This has been half-blocked by barriers and tape for weeks, and today it may have been fully closed off, though it looked like people were actively working on maintaining it today, so hopefully it’ll reopen with repairs shortly.

    This POPS appears well maintained and quite usable, though with a couple issues – the area fronting the street as well as the back wall of the space are lined with comfortable wooden benches with backs, while all planters also have sittable ledges. A long, backless wooden bench runs parallel to one such ledge, which, along with an array of concrete blobs at sitting height in the center of the courtyard, provide plenty of space for seated conversation. The space is clearly open to the street, and signage is clearly posted with correct (24 hour) access hours, while the depth of the space also allows for a bit of distance from the traffic on 33rd street. The lack of tables does somewhat limit the usefulness of the space during the lunch hour. In terms of other amenities, at the time of visit, the required retail frontage appeared to be present but under construction inside, but the required bicycle parking could not be located, and while present, the required drinking fountain was not functional.
