Project Objectives


Physical survey:
To ultimately use the information for the installation design and permit filing, we’re looking to obtain very specific physical information about the infrastructure of the site. These elements will need to be mapped with dimensions

  • Manholes
  • Hydrants
  • Runoff basins
  • Traffic lights
  • Street lights
  • Street signs
  • Bike racks
  • Benches
  • Trash bins
  • Tree beds
  • Trees
  • Planters
  • Gardens / Lawns
  • Curb ramp
  • Bus stops
  • Bus shelters
  • Subway access
  • Subway vents
  • Kiosks / Magazine stands
  • Security booths
  • Phone Booths
  • Mailboxes
  • Bollards
  • Sidewalk basement entry
  • Parking meters and parking spaces

Environmental survey:
A lot of important information can be in the private realm. Information about the surrounding buildings can give us great insight about the area. Research information including:

  • Building purpose and current use
  • LEED designed or retrofitted buildings
  • Green or White Roofs
  • Building age
  • Demolished landmarks

Community survey:
To find out about intangible elements and events at each site we need information about what the local community and City Departments are concerned with. We expect this to help us find a focus theme that’s relevant to the site and it’s people.

  • Infrastructure issues and needs
  • Social issues and needs
  • Health issues and needs
  • Environmental issues and needs
  • Demographics (composition, income, education, etc)
  • Neighborhood history
  • Photographs, recent and historical
  • Any other demographic information that helps understand the neighborhood and its inhabitants

Inventory and research information about institutions including:

  • Local Community Board
  • Business Improvement Districts
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Philantropy Clubs (Rotary, Lions, etc)
  • Community Organizations
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Cultural Institutions
  • Monuments
