Look! Small Skyscraper Fence in Brooklyn

Enjoying the unseasonably warm weather last Sunday, we spotted these skyscraper fence posts on Clinton Street in Brooklyn. Though the spire of the Empire State Building had been damaged, we loved this little hint of New York City on the sidewalk...

With lots of people and very little gardening space, the small area around openings in the sidewalk (is there a name for this space?) often have unique fencing and decorations....we've seen toy castles re-purposed here to protect trees from dogs and concrete creations inlaid with marbles and golf balls...

Send pictures of your favorite examples of this unique urban space to newyork(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com with URBAN GARDEN in the subject line!
