Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight. These are called privately owned public spaces.They are public by virtue of ordinances here in NYC. Reference to the concept.. More here.\\Here are maps of these kinds of places within NYC NYC here Privately Owned Public Spaces, abbreviated as "POPS", are an amenity provided and maintained by a developer for public use, in exchange for additional floor area.This would be the case in your question.POPS typically contain functional and visual amenities such as tables, chairs and planting for the purpose of public use and enjoyment. The concept is to provide light, air, breathing room and green space to ease the predominately concrete character of NYC's densest areas.
