Washington Square Park SpearGate Update

New, 18 comments

On the last episode of Benepe & Swan, Parks Commish Adrien Benepe and Washington Square Park Blog gadfly Cathryn Swan were locked in an argument over whether the park's new fence was topped by "spears" or "rounded balls." This time around the subject matter is similar, but Benepe is bowing out of the debate: "It seems there are a number of points where we will have to agree to disagree. We may never come to an understanding on what is or is not public space (I would argue the entire park is public space), how to define a renovation versus a 'spruce up,' a spear versus a ball and whether or not the Parks Department has been responsive to community concern."
