What have you started?

A business based on guides to vest-pocket parks and usable public spaces around the U.S. beginning with a guide to NYC's pocket parks. I may spread to London in the future since they currently have an initiative to create pocket parks.

What are you starting now?

Same as above.

What helps you stimulate your imagination? What are your favorite books? Movies?

Classical music with mostly strings, jazz, and all of it without vocals if I'm writing. Jon Irving and Anna Quindlan's writing inspires my fiction. New York City inspires my soul.

Each IDEA Cafe ideally has six or seven people who attend a business meeting after the regular meeting once a month and who lead one of the meetings each month. Would you possibly be willing to do this for a group?

No, thanks.

How did you hear about Small Business Chamber's IDEA Startup Workshops?

I discovered your grants some years ago.


My name is Rosemary O'Brien and I am an author and the owner of Pocket Parks Publishing. I'm working on creating a niche business around guides to pocket parks and public spaces around the U.S. beginning with NYC.
