Here's more about the project via the Poetry Society of New York:
The Typewriter Project is a series of site-specific literary installations which encourage users to go analog. These typewriter installations — wooden booths with a seat, desk, and typewriter inside — allow both professional writers and first time typists alike to join in a citywide lyrical exchange.
Each booth is outfitted with a seat, desk, typewriter, 100-foot scroll of paper, solar generator, hidden tablet, and a USB typewriter kit, which allows every written entry to be collected, stored, and posted online for users to read, share, and comment upon.
The Typewriter Project investigates the subconscious of the city by creating unique spaces designed for contemplation in which users can contribute to narrative of that particular location.
The Typewriter Project's first installation appeared on Governors Island last summer. Tompkins Square Park is the third installation, and will be around (God willing) until July 19. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 3-8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday,noon-8 p.m.
And apparently it is a pooch-friendly booth…
