NYC Parking Spaces Transformed in Global Event

View Comments ()



    The parking space transformation is part of a global initiative.

    New Yorkers are transforming 30 metered parking spots around the five boroughs into green spaces, performance areas and outdoor classrooms.     

    The Friday event is part of a global effort called PARK(ing) Day, which raises awareness of the need for public space in urban areas.     

    Around the city, the meter spaces are being turned into things like mini-parks.

    In one space, theater students will be performing works from Shakespeare.
