NYC Parks will consider your fantastic ideas and you should also share them as notes below and become an Organizer so you can connect with others to make the futures we imagine real! Keep in mind that NYC Parks isn't going to do your project for you.

Opening buildings costs money and NYC Parks' has a limited budget. HereĀ is a great guide to how to get money for your NYC Parks building stewardship project, created by the Center for Urban Pedagogy, New Yorkers for Parks and Partnerships for Parks: http://welcometocup.org/file_columns/0000/0613/improve_my_park.pdf. Follow the tips for "Capital Projects."

Getting your Council Member on board is key: they have money to give out every year via their discretionary budget; some Members allocate some of their discretionary money to Participatory Budgeting: https://council.nyc.gov/pb/. You can get involved to get the word out about the need to re-activate the building you want to steward.

The building might be landmarked. If it is, any work will need to comply with these rules: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/lpc/applications/applications.page

This arched structure just east of Skate Park 109 is locked from public use. Its roof is an overlook. Behind the locked gates of the arches are two bathrooms. I know of no plans to restore this structure. The skate park itself is subject to a major reworking. See https://www.nycgovparks.org/planning-and-building/capital-project-tracker/project/6733
