DEIS: Parkland concerns; "Open space" surrounding parking garage B"


Draft EIS states:

In addition to the active facilities cited above, public passive open space would surround Parking Garage B along East 164th Street (0.3 acres). This area would contain such amenities as grass and trees.


This open space will not be useful to the community but will merely act as landscaping around a parking garage. To call it “passive open space” insinuates that people will actually spend time here, which is unlikely. Landscaped areas surrounding parking garages are not generally known for passive park activity.

Passive? Do you know what that means? a little "patch" of grass (real or artificia) with a bench for sitting. Who wants to sit and look at parking garages? This is hardly an even exchange for valuable parkland that is used by residents.
What are our elected officials thinking to approve giving away valuable Public Space for this?
