In order to maintain its property rights, Park Avenue's Lever House must close its private-but-open-to-the-public courtyard for part of the day one day per year. This Sunday is that day, with the courtyard to be closed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.. Turns out there are a few other NYC properties with the same arrangement, including Rockefeller Plaza, Shubert Alley, and Columbia's College Walk, all using the one-afternoon closure to protect themselves against adverse possession. One legal scholar calls it quaint. [City Room]
