Today on Fordham Conversations we’ll talk to Daniel Campo, author of The Accidental Playground out now from Fordham University Press. It’s about what happened when Brooklyn residents gathered at the Brooklyn Waterfront, which was then an unofficial, do-it-yourself park. He talks about how the "unpark" was used in the late 90s and early 2000s and how it's changed since state officials got involved.
