Interior. Children's Pavilion? BNOdesign envisions the space not as what's needed in the communty but instead as another restaurant. All that time and energy put into these designs makes one wonder what delights the firm could have come up with if they put their efforts into creating a design that served the community instead. Despite strong community opposition, the Union Square Partnership and the City are attempting to install a seasonal restaurant in the historic pavilion.
Performers in the pavilion, sponsored by the Union Square Community Coalition - early 1980's.
Playground equipment in the sunken terrace, circa 1985. The BID and the City have tried to claim this area as new playground space when in fact they are restoring what was taken away by the seasonal Luna cafe for twelve years.
