2 Locations 1) Columbus Circle/ Grand Army Plaza 2) Union Square 3) Barcade

3 Union Square

4 Patterns: Day - Green Market (shoppers walk towards the outer edges of the park) - area in flux - some stopping Night - area in flux - no stopping - large skating population (average 13 men) Who are Strangers in this space: people who want to be isolated, or in a quiet space (its hard to be a stranger to union square) Modes of interaction (how do strangers communicate): cell phone (to people outside of union square) ipod (suggest they do not want to talk) walking pace? Union Square

6 Central Park South Entrances

7 Patterns:area in flux - transportation hub - high traffic Apple Store shoppers? Tourists. Higher income area. Corporate types. Who are Strangers in this space: hipsters, bohemians, protestors, sketchy characters Modes of interaction (how do strangers communicate): walking slowly - I am a tourist groups talk to each other cell phones

9 Barcade

10 Patterns: in general: walk in, buy a drink, play some games, buy more beer - if seats are available, groups move towards the booths in the back Who are Strangers in this space: Bachelorette party Someone not in age group between 21 and 39 Businessmen Modes of interaction (how do strangers communicate): placing beer next to arcade game (thus claiming space) leaving high score initials groups of communicate with each other exclusively
