Paley Park is one of the first of a series of Pocket Park built in the city.It has rather a simple plan, slightly elevated from the street and has a water fountain at the end of the park with serves as the parks focal point. The park is rather dark due to the tall buildings around it and designed in a minimalistic fashion, which to me makes it appeal serene.
Plan of a later Pocket Park in Midtown Greenacre Park. This Park is more Dynamic with a variety of separate setting areas. this park also has a water fountain on its end but the water fountain is less flat and almost appears more naturalistic.
The Renzo Piano’s addition to The morgan library.
Also acts like a void in between two existing structures like the pocket parks. Renzo constructed this addition so it was light and ethereal and almost a resting spot in the museum kind of like the pocket parks of midtown.
