NYC Parks Department's parks and playgrounds,
NYC Department of City Planning's Privately Owned Public Spaces(POPS)
NYC Department of Transportation's Public Plaza and Citybench programs.
These agencies act as "manufacturers" of spaces. As manufacturers their function is to "tout" their lines of open spaces, not those of the other manufacturers. (hey would you expect Samsung to tout Sony products?)
|NYC park Dept map lists their Parks only|
|Dept Of City Planning Privately map listing their Privately Owned Public Spaces only|
there is no NYC DOT Plaza's or Benches map however a list of Plazas can be found here
|The park Chelsea map is a "Retailers" map , it lists open spaces and seating from all "manufacturers"|
In mapping these spaces Park Chelsea acts as the "retailer (like Best Buys or PC Richards) of these open spaces.
Park Chelsea is also a "systems integrator" and views seating in parks, pops and plazas as the seating " components" of our newest product , park walking trails.
