Do you guys know what Stoops are for ? 😉
Can you imagine summer in the city, you are sitting on a stoop with coffee gossiping with your friend, watching daily life on a street💭. It's so New York, right? Sadly, this feature available only for people living in the building😔 The argument is on: The Stoop. Private or public? I got my answer a minute after I sat on it😦 Some woman living in the basement hurried to inform me that this place is in fact private🚫 But is it though? Ever since the beginning Stoop is performing a social function - to stir up a life on a street. Ah, those smart Dutch, they brought their tradition to elevate an entrance to protect against flooding aaaaand.... to extend streets that were super narrow in canal-dominated Amsterdam! So may be the purpose of the Stoop is to strike interactinon and keep street alive🤗 what do you think, guys, Private or public ?
