Information about this lot
Why is this lot here?
We posted this lot because:
This land is being stewarded by the following group:
BAM has built it's proposal and unveiled it 4 days ago. Here's the press release: http://www.bam.org/media/2505121/bam_bike_park_final.pdf
It has added new bike parking opportunities to a block that really needs them but we wonder what's behind the screen (look at the picture or walk by the site and you'll see that the installation is only about six feet deep). Most of the lot? Storage? A future dog run?
We heard from folks at Community Board 2 that BAM has a proposal moving forward for this space that includes an art wall. It might have room for more community ideas, too! Call BAM (718.636.4100) and find out who's in charge. And connect with the community board at the democracymap link above!
I'm a nutrition grad student who lives around the corner on Saint Felix Street. While a dog run and a skate park both sound like great ideas, keep in mind Layfatte is a busy street. The ocassional stray dog or skateboard could have some serious implications. With that said, I'm interested in a green space with a cute garden. Maybe a few picnic tables where the community could have a weekend BBQ, an early morning coffee social, or an afternoon outdoor yoga class. I think a space that brings in all citizens of the community is key in a space like this.

All dog runs in NYC are created and managed by local dog run groups. The first step is to put a group together. This guide might be helpful: http://nycdog.org/NYCdogFreeserver/park.html
