An Invisible Empire of Sidewalks and Gutters’: Says son Jotham, ‘Short version?  Because of surveying errors and the like, there are tiny, unusable slivers of land all over NYC (and I imagine other places) which are routinely auctioned off by the city. One man went around and bought lots of them, and made little wild gardens.’

An interesting post from BLDGBLOG by Geoff Manaugh on ‘Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation, Landscape Futures.’ A blog well-worth dipping into, if only for the visuals.
