Since most Manhattanites are apartment dwellers with no access to outdoor space, these little urban oases, no matter how small, act as a back yard, a front porch or a sunny terrace when the weather is warm and pleasant.
This little outdoor area in lower Manhattan, Petrosino Square, just went through a renovation where salvaged architectural details are cleverly placed on new brick columns that delineate the entrances to this space.
I can see myself lounging on one of Petrosino Square's park benches on a bright, Spring day. Do you think I can pick up WiFi there?
