A pop-up park opened in OpenHouse Gallery at 201 Mulberry Street bwtween Kenmare and Spring Streets in Nolita over the weekend. The gallery converted three and a half rooms into an indoor park, complete with see-saw and piped in sounds of birds, as well as fake rocks, trees, grass, a "pond" and benches. Imagine if Ikea had a "park" inside their store; that's what it is. Which is not a complaint, just an observation. While inside on Sunday, the park was complete with comfortable people sitting on the "lawn" reading books, and vaguely Nordic looking people milling about the see-saw as their children pushed up and down. The park is open from 11-6 everyday until the end of the month. See more photos on NYC The Blog's Facebook page.
UPDATE: Here's a video interview with the owner/curator of the space.
