Shakespeare in the Park(ing Space) Comes to Fordham


Fordham theatre students joined with their architectural counterparts on Friday, Sept. 19 to liberate parking spaces across the street from the Lincoln Center campus.

The students laid down sod, constructed a stage and redeemed the space from its customary vehicular drudgery by performing Shakespeare at what must have been the world’s smallest performing arts venue.

Their efforts were part of National Park(ing) Day, an annual event meant to protest the automobile’s monopolization of urban street-space and to draw attention to the need for public parks.

In cities all over the world, designers and activists took over parking spots, fed the meters for the day and turned the spaces into tiny public parks.
