#POPOS claiming via the YMCA

I love this summer seniors' activity listing from the Stonestown YMCA. Especially the author's straightforward choice not to mention phrases like "secret" or "hidden"; not to mention the problems with overly subtle signage and difficult multi-stage entry procedures at some of the Privately Owned Public Open Spaces (POPOS). (Or is that plural "POPOSes"?) The listing also doesn't bother with self-congratulation on the element of cutting-edge civic responsibility in the public enjoyment of such spaces. It's just -- well, the city has rooftop gardens, so let's go! What are we waiting for?
