slukster: After much consideration, having searched for a new spot with no luck, and since the attraction of the spot is gone I will have to let this one go.

Geocache Description:

P O P S - Paramount Plaza

POPS stands for Privately Owned Public Space and these spaces can be found throughout NYC.  I noticed the tree symbol at several areas while scoping out cache locations and did some investigating. Here is an excerpt from the webpage talking about these POPS.  Click on the following link for more info: POPS webpage
The 1961 Zoning Resolution inaugurated the incentive zoning program in New York City. The program encouraged private developers to provide spaces for the public within or outside their buildings by allowing them greater density in certain high-density districts. Since its inception, the program has produced more than 3.5 million square feet of public space in exchange for additional building area or other considerations such as relief from certain height and setback restrictions.

This cache is located at 1633 Broadway between W. 50th & W. 51st Streets. A short walk to Times Square and the Broadway theaters, you will be in the heart of Manhattan.

**04/18/12 - The MARS 2112 restaurant and flying saucer are no longer at this location. Still a nice plaza to rest for a while
Just Snoopin' for caches!!!
