Spring is here, and so New Yorkers have begun to pine for the great outdoors. But restful spots are hard to come by in the city, so we asked a handful of New Yorkers: Would you rather live next to a public park or have a private decked-out courtyard?
Kid tested, parent approved Park is definitely the better option. You can go for a jog there, or take the kids out to play or have picnics. There's so much more to do than just... I don't know what you do in a courtyard. Sit on the benches, I guess. We live close to the water and we go for walks with our kids along the waterfront. My son often asks if we can go to the park instead. —Zachary, Long Island City
Going to the dogs I have a dog, so I love being close to a park for walks. I take him out in the streets but a dog run, and just having the space, is good for both of us. A courtyard wouldn't do any good. —Lauren, Hamilton Heights
Verdict: A clean sweep for our well-kept, amazing parks! Go NYC Parks Department!
