Wrapping around the street faces of this residential building from the southeast corner of Third Avenue and East 24th Street is this small strip of plaza. Low planters with ledges sporting a decorative, spiked railing border much of the space. On a sunny day, residents supply their own chairs and sit in front of the planters. A recent site visit disclosed gates on both Third Avenue and East 24th Street, separating the public sidewalk from the accessible space. No record of City approval for these gates has been found.

    During a July 2014 walk through of the space, we observed that this POPS has no amenities and is simply a series of stairs leading down to a lower level with storefronts. It’s unclear if the empty upper area is designated for public use – but it could certainly use an upgrade.
