Don't Fence Me Out

Paula Segal got the barricades around Zuccotti Park removed. Now she has a new target.

Regardless of how the Chase Manhattan Plaza is resolved, Segal and her partners say it's just the beginning. Working with a collective of urban-design experts and public-space advocates called #whOWNSpace, she has lined up dozens of other supposedly public spaces in New York that are actually closed to the public.

"Our goal is to tackle one of these a month," Segal says. "This is an issue throughout the city."
