Although this lot seems to be owned by the MTA (OASIS suggests this!), we really think the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) has jurisdiction over it.

NYC is holds the deed to it (as you can see on ACRIS).

Here's the information for Borough DOT Commissioner Joseph Palmieri:

Give his office a call and ask about plans for this de-mapped street.

Hi Isak,

We're organizing a lot down the road at Church and E 18th, also with NYC Transit (MTA). We're pretty far along in our process and if you'd like some tips either in kicking off organizing or dealing with Transit let me know. Would love to see another garden in the area!

This is a demapped street (NOT A LOT). You can see its footprint on OASIS here:

Some folks in the neighborhood suggested that it might make a great plaza. Seems like the next step could be a meeting to make this happen!
