Park Not Thine Car Here
Fordham Lincoln Center campus students and faculty joined Transportation Alternatives on Friday, Sept. 16 to claim their space on the curb in the annual Park(ing) Day 2011.
The students joined activists in some 130 cities around the world to reclaim a street parking space for a day and to transform it into a people-friendly public space.
Students in Fordham’s architecture program designed and crafted furniture out of recycled cardboard; students from Fordham’s theatre program built a stage, and a group of freshman acting majors performed Shakespeare in the Park(ing) spot for passers-by.
